City of Parramatta Action Pledge Coming Soon!
In the meantime, check out some pledges that councils can choose from:
Encourage sustainable transport use (public transport, walking and cycling) through Council transport planning and design. Substantial savings in transport energy use can be achieved by designing more compact cities with access to high quality public and active transport services and facilities.
Install renewable energy (solar PV and battery storage) on council buildings for example childcare facilities, libraries, street lighting, recreation centres, sporting grounds, and council offices.
Use strategic and statutory planning processes to promote renewable energy both at the residential, commercial and larger scale.
Incentivise the deployment of energy efficient heating and cooling technologies.
Set minimum energy efficiency benchmarks for all planning applications.
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.
Ensure that new developments are designed to maximize public and active transport use, and are designed to support electric vehicle uptake.
Adopt best practice energy efficiency measures across all council buildings, and support community facilities to adopt these measures.
Opening up unused council managed land for renewable energy, for example land fills, and road reserves.
Implement an education and behavior change program to influence the behavior of council officers, local residents and businesses within the municipality to drive the shift to renewable energy, energy efficiency and sustainable transport.
