Help shape a sustainable water future for the Blue Mountains
Do you want our waterways to be healthy in the long term? To live in a place that is more resilient to heatwaves, drought, flooding and bushfire?
Our city faces significant challenges (such as climate change and urban development) that will have a big impact on our waterways and the way we use water. To secure a sustainable future, we need to rethink how we use and value water now. As a member of our local community, your knowledge and ideas are vital to this discussion.
Have your say
Council, together with Water NSW and the Cooperative Research Centre for Water Sensitive Cities, is running community workshops to help guide us towards a more sustainable, livable, ‘water sensitive’ future. This is an exciting opportunity for people from the community, government and business to get together and help shape our future. The workshops will be dynamic and interactive, exploring:
- How we might benefit from a ‘water sensitive’ approach to development;
- successful ‘water sensitive’ case studies from Australia and overseas; and
- potential local projects to implement as part of Council’s new Water Sensitive City Plan.
You can choose a workshop time and location that suits you:
|Tuesday 30 October||Lawson Mechanics Institute Hall||Evening: 7-9pm. Dinner provided|
|Wednesday 31 October||Katoomba Cultural Centre||Daytime: 9.30am-12.30pm. Lunch provided|
