Mayor: Peter Maynard
Wyndham’s Climate Change Adaptation Strategy responds to Wyndham’s priority climate change risks and gaps, and also seeks to establish a culture of organisational learning to feed into future Council work.
The Strategy has five themes, which it seeks to respond to, including:
Managing water use and urban heat reduction
Empowering a resilient community
Protecting our biodiversity
Building climate resilient infrastructure
Establishing adaptation excellence.
Wyndham City has a number of strategies, plans and policies that inform the Council’s programs and outline strategic directions in regards to environmental sustainability. Read more about their policies and strategies here.
