Since 2005, Council has made great progress in incorporating sustainability goals specified in the Sustainable Action Plans and turning them into actions. The original Sustainability Action Plan (SAP) Think Global Act Local 2005-2015, was endorsed by Council in 2005 and was the strategy behind the community adoption of the Sustainability Levy in 2007. The Levy was introduced with the support of the community to fast track actions identified within the SAP.

With the current Sustainability Action Plan expiring, Council conducted a community-wide survey in late 2021/early 2022 to identify the community's sustainability values and to obtain insights on key issues, gaps, challenges, needs and opportunities regarding sustainability and the environment in Lane Cove. The feedback was used to shape the draft actions addressing the natural and built environment, community engagement, economic sustainability, energy, society, sustainable transport and water in the Draft Sustainability Action Plan 2022 – 2025. 

The Draft Sustainability Action Plan 2022-2025 is now available for public review and feedback.

The Draft Sustainability Action Plan 2022-2025 has three key themes; Livability, Community and Environment, which reflect Council’s quadruple bottom line approach ensuring all decisions consider a balance of economic, environmental, social and governance to enhance the quality of life in Lane Cove. Each theme has 12 goals and each goal has up to 18 strategic actions resulting in more than 100 strategic actions to create a more sustainable Lane Cove that is able to be resilient in the face of future challenges. 

This Draft Sustainability Action Plan provides Council with a robust framework in which to continue to purse excellence in sustainability.
