COVID-19: some of our facilities have reopened. You must be fully vaccinated to enter.

The broad nature and impact of climate change means that it’s not possible to include all actions in a single document.

The Climate Action Plan will be supported by a range of other specific strategic documents, as outlined below. Some of these strategies already exist. Other strategies will be developed or refreshed as part of the actions of this plan.

Our Boroondara Community Plan includes the Health and Wellbeing Plan, which must respond to climate change under the Local Government Act 2020.

Strategic links will include:

  • Urban Forest Strategy (A new strategy as an action of this plan)
  • Open Space Strategy
  • Integrated Water Management Strategy
  • Urban Biodiversity Strategy
  • Sustainable Transport Policy
  • Public Lighting Policy (A refresh of our current policy to better include sustainability)
  • Sustainable Procurement (A refresh of our current policy to better include sustainability)
  • Council Fleet Policy (A refresh of our current policy to better include sustainability)
  • Circular Economy Strategy (A refresh of our Waste Minimisation and Recycling Strategy)
  • Climate Change Adaptation Plan (A new strategy as an action of this plan)
