Strategy Adopted

Thanks for your contributions

We're excited to share with you the Protect. Create. Live. Northern Beaches Environment and Climate Change Strategy 2040, our plan for a healthy and diverse natural environment that is respected, supported and celebrated. The strategy is the result of extensive research and consultation. It will help us deliver the Protection of the Environment and the Environmental Sustainability community outcomes within Shape 2028 – The Northern Beaches Community Strategic Plan.

The commitments in this strategy are ambitious and our aspirations even more so. They aim to drive the urgent and ongoing action required to address the challenges our environment faces.

Thank you to all who read our draft, watched the videos and made comments or a submission. If you would like to read about the extensive engagement that was completed, please read the Community Engagement Report.
