Workshop about draft climate change policy

A workshop about Central Coast Council's draft climate change policy will be held at Ettalong on Wednesday, February 27.

The Council endorsed a draft climate change policy in August saying the draft policy provided a framework to support future actions around planning for the possible impacts of climate change.

The policy aimed to enable Council to align its operations and strategic planning with the NSW State Climate Change Policy Framework.

Mayor Cr Jane Smith said it was vitally important that the community have a voice in the development of Council's climate change policy and related strategies, plans and actions.

"The purpose of these community workshops is to further educate and work directly with the community to develop the first climate change policy for the Central Coast," Cr Smith said.

"We know the community has a keen interest in climate change and there has already been a lot of discussion and commentary on the draft policy and how it may impact the community.

"It is crucial Council demonstrates leadership in addressing climate change and its impacts through responsible planning and collaboration in the best interests of our community.

"We are doing this by involving the community every step of the way in this policy development.

"Council is serious about managing risk on behalf of and with our community.

"We need to reduce emissions to start solving the long term challenges of climate change but also adapt to the changes that we know are already happening."

Public exhibition started on Monday 4 February and will run until Friday 15 March 2019.

The Gosford West ward workshop will be held on Wednesday, February 27, from 6pm - 8:30pm at the Mantra Ettalong.
