The four councils of the SHOROC region have begun working on a new strategy to improve the sustainability of the region of the Northern Beaches, from Bradleys Head to Barrenjoey.
“We live in a beautiful region and our residents and councils place a high value on our natural environment and acting sustainably in the way we live and work”, said SHOROC President and Mayor of Mosman Anne Connon.
“This new strategy is about Mosman, Manly, Warringah and Pittwater Councils working together to build on the huge range of work we already do, looking regionally for opportunities to take collaborative action to maintain and enhance our region’s sustainability and way of life.”
“We are looking at current and planned council projects, as well as the potential for regional opportunities to create more sustainable communities, with a focus on areas such as transport, health and wellbeing, resource management and the natural environment”, said Cr Connon.
Another element of this project is the development of ‘health of the region’ indicators to help us track how our strategies to improve our region’s way of life and sustainability are progressing. They will be grouped under themes such as community wellbeing, resource management, employment and natural environment.
This work contributes to the ‘Shaping Our Future’ regional strategy and is funded through a grant from the NSW Government’s Environment Trust.
“Councils and SHOROC welcome ideas from the community. If any residents would like to propose a project for consideration for inclusion in the strategy, please contact SHOROC via our website”, concluded Mayor Connon.
