Partnership action pledges
Our power partners are committed to switching to non-polluting energy and reducing emissions in their communities.
Develop supportive planning laws to encourage residents and industry to adopt renewable energy
Install renewable energy (solar PV and battery storage) on council buildings.
Adopt best practice energy efficiency measures across all council buildings, and support community facilities to adopt these measures.
Support cycling through provision of adequate cycle lanes, bike parking and end-of-ride facilities.
Develop education and behaviour-change programs to support local residents and businesses to tackle climate change through clean energy, energy efficiency and sustainable transport.
This fifth pledge is a regional target to be implemented through the Our Living Coast alliance – with Nambucca Shire Council.
