Environmental excellence - Local Government winners
12 December 2016
Four of the Central West Councils Environment and Waterways Alliance Member Councils have been recognised for their environmental achievements at this year’s prestigious Local Government NSW Environment awards held in Sydney on 29 November.
The award ceremony was held at NSWs first six-star, green-rated venue Doltone House, on Sydney's Darling Island Wharf.
Lachlan Shire Council triumphed being named the overall category winner in Waste Education and Communication for their Waste Services Rationalisation. The Environment and Waterways Alliance also partnered with Lachlan Shire Council on their Roadside Corridor Assessment and Management guidelines for which they were highly commended.
The Natural Environment Protection & Enhancement: On-Ground Works was a highly contested category with three Member Councils nominated amongst the six finalists.
Alliance partnered projects fared well with Parkes Shire Council and Orange City Council being successful in winning their nominated divisions with Bathurst Regional Council being Highly Commended for their Restoring Regent Honeyeater habitat project.
The entries were of an extremely high standard and highlight the success of the tireless environmental efforts being made by these Member Councils and the importance of the collaborative approach with Alliance projects in the region.
The Central West Councils Environment & Waterways Alliance is a partnership of 19 Councils across Central West NSW, encompassing both the Central Tablelands and Central West Local Land Services regions.
The Alliance exists to improve environmental outcomes across the region and works closely with Central Tablelands and Central West Local Land Services.
