Environment covers many areas from climate change, natural resource management, fire hazards through to waste, water and weed control.
Council's Natural Resource Management (NRM) Unit is part of the Environmental Services Department. The core work of the unit involves developing and protecting a network of healthy natural areas in the Kingborough municipality. Our bushland and coastal areas are coming under greater pressure as Kingborough continues to grow. The NRM Unit is involved with a variety of functions that range from strategic vegetation management and managing environmental weeds through to programs aimed at improving urban stormwater discharges.
Reducing the carbon footprint of Council and its community is a key focus as well as planning for the now inevitable climate change impacts that will affect our community and Kingborough's ecosystems.
