BIODIVERSITY AND
OPEN SPACE

Imagine a Greener City that places a value on its natural assets, protects existing levels of biodiversity and works hard to enhance biodiversity levels for the future.

Open space contributes to the liveability and sustainability of the urban environment. A high quality public realm is important for both mental and physical health with access to public open space increasing our wellbeing. In addition, the environment and its biodiversity provide us with the air we breathe, the water we drink and the food we eat.

Council has established open space and biodiversity objectives and targets that will improve the extent and quality of open space across the municipality, as well as protect and enhance local biodiversity, inform and engage our community on the value of our local parks, plants and wildlife, and achieve a healthier community and environment.
