Singleton Council established the Community Sustainability Advisory Committee to act as a reference group for the development of the 2019/2027 Sustainability Strategy and to guide the long-term sustainability of Singleton in partnership with community stakeholders.
The Sustainability Advisory Committee takes a broad approach to sustainability by considering the:
overlap between social, environmental and economic aspects (referred to as the Triple Bottom Line);
vision and strategies outlined the Singleton Community Strategic Plan (CSP) 2017 – 2027; and
United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
Membership varies from appointed Councillors, State Government representatives, local Aboriginal community representatives, persons with relevant industry experience and local community representatives with a demonstrated interest in sustainability.
Through quarterly meetings, key areas of community interest or concern can be raised by Committee members. From these community interests or concerns, opportunity for in-depth discussions with Council staff can assist in integrating potential sustainability actions into management strategies, action plans and policies within Council.
To get in touch with the Committee, please forward your enquiry via email to email@example.com and simply state “sustainability” in the subject line.
