The Shire of Donnybrook-Balingup recognises that for the community to continue to thrive and develop into the future, it is vital to create built environments, and preserve natural environments, that support the health of people living in the area.
A key aspect of this is reducing the Shire’s environmental impact, such as by ensuring that resources like energy and water are used in more efficient ways and not wasted.
How will this be achieved?
The Shire is currently developing a ‘Sustainability Strategy’ which will encompass the Shire’s infrastructure, operations and services, as well as initiatives aimed at the broader community level.
