Read draft climate change policy
I'm writing in support of the need for a climate change policy for the Central Coast.
It is right and proper for the Central Coast Council to release its Draft Climate Change Policy for community input over the next few months.
The Draft Climate Change Policy puts forward a measured approach to seeking the best ways to adapt to the reality of climate change.
I encourage all Central Coast residents to read the document, available on Council's website (yourvoiceourcoast.com/climatechange), and attend to public meetings that will be held in February in each of the five wards.
The existence of a climate change policy, or otherwise, will not prevent climate change from effecting us.
However, it outlines broad actions on climate change and will enable Council to align its operations and strategic planning with the NSW State Climate Change Policy Framework.
No decisions have been made as yet so there is plenty of time for Central Coast residents to get the facts and make their submissions to Council.
