About

In July 2021, Golden Plains Shire Council declared a Climate Emergency, a resolution for immediate and urgent action to reverse global warming and adapt to changes that society cannot avoid. As part of this resolution, Council committed to preparing a Climate Emergency Plan to put the declaration’s words into actions.

The Golden Plains Climate Emergency Plan will detail actions both Council and the community can take to mitigate, adapt and respond to climate change in the Shire.

The Plan will examine climate change in the Shire, including extreme weather events such as increased frequency of storms, bushfires and heatwaves, and address the flow on impacts these changes have on infrastructure, the natural environment and the mental and physical health of the community. 

Engagement Update

The Golden Plains Climate Emergency Plan survey was open from Wednesday 2 March to Wednesday 6 April. Community members were invited to have their say by completing the survey or attending on of the Climate Emergency Plan Workshops held across the Shire. Council Officers also attended the Golden Plains Farmers' Market and Smythesdale Country Market to discuss how Council can mitigate, adapt and respond to climate change in the Shire.

Thank you to all of the community members who had their say during the consultation period.

What Happens Next 

Council will consider all community feedback provided as the Draft Golden Plains Climate Emergency Plan 2022-2026 is developed.
