State of the environment report
The State of the Environment Report gives the community and Councils local information on the condition of the environment to help guide decisions.
Why a State of the Environment Report?
Environmental issues are not restricted to Council boundaries.
Regional State of the Environment Reports are recommended by the NSW Government. They are used by some groups of Councils to better understand of the state of the environment in a regional context and to identify how they can work together.
More specifically, a regional approach to reporting:
- gives better understanding of the state of the environment across the region
- encourages working together, partnering on projects and sharing ideas and resources
- help in the management of shared environmental resources
- forges stronger regional links across Councils.
