Council introduced the Environmental Levy as a means of
undertaking environmental management works. The levy currently raises around
$1.3 million per annum for local environmental works at an average cost of $44
per rate payer.
Council recognises the value and importance in providing an
environmental program that offers and delivers opportunities to help sustain
and improve the local environment.
The Environmental Levy Policy provides a framework for how
the new method for the allocation of funds will work.
Grants are now closed for the 2018/19 Environmental Levy
Applications are currently being assessed and successful
applicants will be notified in August 2018.
Further funds could potentially become available for a
second round of funding based on the outcome of this assessment.
