Council introduced the Environmental Levy (EL) as a means of undertaking environmental management works. The levy currently raises around $1 million per annum for local environmental works at an average cost of $44 per rate payer.
Community groups are encouraged to apply for EL funds for environmental projects. For more information, take a look at the Environmental Levy Guidelines and Application Form. For further enquiries please contact Council on 6648 4278.
Approved 2017/2018 Environmental Levy Projects.
A new Environmental Levy Policy was recently placed on public exhibition; it provides a framework for how the new method for the allocation of funds will work.
A report is expected to be presented at a Council meeting in April or May where Council will consider adopting the new Environmental Levy Policy having regard to feedback received.
Environmental Levy Grant applications will be called for soon after the policy is adopted.
