Congratulations to the cities of Brimbank, Greater Bendigo, Greater Dandenong, Hobsons Bay, Kingston, Whittlesea and Wyndham for the recent gazettal of their local ESD Policies.
Seven councils have had their local Environmentally Sustainable Development (ESD) Policies approved by the Minister for Planning in Amendment GC110. The Cities of Brimbank, Greater Bendigo, Greater Dandenong, Hobsons Bay, Kingston, Whittlesea and Wyndham join ten other councils with an identical ESD Policy. The Minister saw fit not to require exhibition of six of the seven policies prior to gazettal, and we believe this is an endorsement of the work these seven councils have done with their communities, as well as the rigorous process the previous ten councils have gone through. We hope this furthers the case for comprehensively addressing ESD at the state level.
Congratulations to these councils and to all Council Alliance for a Sustainable Built Environment (CASBE) councils who have collaboratively worked on this initiative. CASBE is an association of Victorian councils committed to ensuring future generations can enjoy a sustainable built environment.
Proudly hosted by the MAV, CASBE enables broad-scale positive change to Victoria’s built environment through collaborative, local government-led action.
