Climate change in the Town of Victoria Park

We have developed a comprehensive Climate Emergency Plan that outlines our strategies to mitigate and adapt to the impacts of a changing climate.

Climate change refers to long-term shifts in temperatures and weather patterns, and its effects are being felt globally. In the Town, we are witnessing firsthand the consequences of a warming climate. Rising temperatures, extreme weather events, and other climate-related changes pose significant risks to our community and environment.

To tackle this pressing issue, we have created a Climate Emergency Plan: to reduce our town's emissions to 0% by 2030. 

Our plan encompasses a range of strategies and initiatives to achieve our emission reduction targets. 

  • Implementation of an urban forest strategy, which aims to increase green spaces, promote biodiversity, and enhance natural carbon sinks within our town. 
  • Improving our stormwater drainage systems to address the challenges posed by changing rainfall patterns. 
  • Implementing water conservation measures.
  • Reducing waste generation and maximising resource efficiency, we can minimise our environmental footprint and contribute to a more sustainable future.
  • Encouraging recycling, implementing sustainable procurement practices, and supporting local businesses
