Council’s Climate Resilience Plan is a document that
provides a framework of goals, targets and actions to mitigate, adapt and
thrive from local shocks and stresses in response to the changing climate.
The increasing occurrence and intensity of extreme weather
events is predicted to impact Lane Cove. Being prepared for climate shocks has
multiple benefits. It means we can reduce the economic, social and
environmental costs of disasters resulting from disruptions to Council's
services, our community and impacts on our natural environment.
The Plan was developed in collaboration with key
stakeholders in the community and Council staff by performing a resilience risk
assessment in line with the framework utilised by Resilient Sydney.
The Climate Resilience Plan sets goals and targets on five
(5) resilient themes:
• resilient buildings,
resilient urban open space,
• resilient natural environment, and
goals and targets will guide the implementation of the priority actions over
the next five years to respond to the challenges posed by a changing climate.
