The Committee is made up of two councillors, up to 11 community members and Shire staff with interest and expertise in sustainability and environmental related matters.
The Committee has agreed on a set of priorities through which it hopes to work in providing advice on a wide range of issues to Council.
It is the Committee’s intention to focus its work and research on a given priority until it has forwarded recommendations to Council, then move on to consider the next priority. This procedure would be set aside, however, in the event that Council requested timely advice on any other issue.
