Council at its Ordinary Meeting held on 11 October 2017 resolved to adopt a revision to the Overarching Sustainability Policy for advertising.

The purpose of the policy is to set governing principles that align the strategic direction of the organisation through all five key areas of the Community Strategic Plan 2036. Rather than sustainability being a balance between the three pillars, the revised policy recognises that without a healthy and sustainable environment, continuous economic prosperity and community well-being is not possible.

The Draft Policy can be viewed here - Sustainability Policy

If you wish to comment on the draft policy, you may do so by way of written submission by emailing your response to or by post to Shire of Augusta Margaret River, PO Box 61, Margaret River  WA  6285.  Submissions must be received on or before 29 JUNE 2018.
