Bathurst Regional Council Action Pledge Coming Soon!
In the meantime, check out some pledges that councils can choose from:
Ensure that new developments are designed to maximize public and active transport use, and are designed to support electric vehicle uptake.
Support community facilities accessing renewable energy through incentives, support or grants.
Provide incentives (for example rate reductions) for best practice developments such as streamlined planning processes, and support for retrofitting energy efficiency measures for existing buildings.
Incentivise the deployment of energy efficient heating and cooling technologies.
Facilitate large energy users collectively tendering and purchasing renewable energy at a low cost.
Use strategic and statutory planning processes to promote renewable energy both at the residential, commercial and larger scale.
Opening up unused council managed land for renewable energy, for example land fills, and road reserves.
Provide council resources to educate and support the uptake of renewable energy, such as by hiring an internal renewable energy support officer or establishing an independent body (such as the Moreland and Yarra Energy Foundations).
Consider disincentives for driving high emitting vehicles such as congestion pricing, or a tiered payment system for residential car parking permits where high emitting vehicles pay more.
Promote knowledge sharing and strengthen the local community’s capacity and skills in renewable energy, energy efficiency and sustainable transport.
