Great news!!!! At the 24 September meeting, Council adopted the Water Sensitive Blue Mountains Strategic Plan and the Weed Management Strategic Plan 2019.
The Water Sensitive Blue Mountains Strategic Plan was drafted in collaboration with WaterNSW and the Cooperative Research Centre for Water Sensitive Cities, and updated in response to community feedback. It sets out the best-practice approaches and design principles Council will follow to manage our city’s waterways and water resources, focusing on water efficiency, water harvesting and reuse, stormwater management and community education.
The Weed Management Strategic Plan 2019 replaces our 2010 plan, taking into account policy and legislative changes in relation to weed control including changes to the role of councils and landowners under the NSW Biosecurity Act 2015.
