Consultation has concluded

The City of Kalamunda has developed its Local Environmental Strategy and is seeking your views.

The Local Environment Strategy (LES) had been in development since 2017, starting off with a visioning workshop. In May 2018, the City underwent preliminary consultation with the community and staff which included media releases, surveys, and community visioning workshops. At the 26 February 2019 Ordinary Council Meeting Council endorsed the draft LES for community engagement.

Engagement Activities & Promotion

The draft LES was promoted through a number of community pop-ups, workshops and an integrated marketing campaign promoted on the City's social media platforms and in community newspapers. Extensive external consultation has occurred throughout.

The draft LES recieved 185 submissions. Comments from the community were generally supportive of the draft LES and they were keen to be able to see its implementation and progress. There was some concern about the length of the document and the clarity of the aims and action tables.

At their meeting of 2 May 2019, the Kalamunda Environmental Advisory Committee reviewed the community feedback to the draft LES and recommended the LES be presented to Council for endorsement subject to improvements to the Objectives, Strategies and Actions table within the LES and the Council endorsed document be graphically enhanced prior to release to the public.

Outcome

At the 23 July 2019 Ordinary Council Meeting, Council resolved to adopt the Kalamunda Clean and Green Local Environment Strategy.
