Growing an environmentally sustainable Subi

The City of Subiaco is a leader in environmental innovation and sustainability. The City uses its resources and capabilities to improve the local environment for the benefit of current and future generations. The role of Local Government is to establish local environmental policies and regulations, and it plays a vital role in educating, mobilising and responding to the public to promote environmental sustainability.

Climate change poses a significant threat to the sustainability of the City. Its impacts are increasing and include issues of flora and fauna extinction, water scarcity, extreme weather events like drought, floods, heat waves and longer bush fire seasons.

The draft Environment Plan was adopted by Council in 2019. The final plan can be found here.

About the consultation

The objective of the draft Environmental Plan is to identify the key directions and actions the City and its community will take to adapt its environment under current and new changing climate conditions.

The plan aims to:

  • Reduce water use within parks and open spaces.
  • Increase water re-use and use of fit-for-purpose water sources.
  • Maintain, or where possible improve, water quality in wetlands and water bodies.
  • Increase flora, fauna and green corridor connections across and beyond the City.
  • Minimise the spread of plant pathogens, and manage their effects.
  • Provide environmental leadership to the community and other stakeholders.
  • Enable and support community action towards environmental priorities.

You can read the draft Environmental Plan (8.4MB) in the Document Library.
