The Mansfield Shire Council, at its Ordinary Meeting on 17 January 2012, resolved to disband the Environment Committee as a Section 86 Special Committee of Council. Under the same resolution, Council supported the formation of the Environment Advisory Committee under the Local Government Act 1989.
The objective of the Committee is to advise upon and facilitate the improvement and expansion of Council’s environmental management and sustainable development programs and policies to ensure Council is undertaking and promoting environmental conservation and sustainable resource use practices.
The structure of the committee allows for Council and relevant agency representation, as well as three Mansfield Shire community representatives.
The Committee is scheduled to meet a minimum of six times per year.
A copy of the Mansfield Shire Environment Advisory Committee Charter is available to download on the right hand side of this page.
For further information on the Environment Advisory Committee or any other environment issue, please contact Council's Environment Officer Damien Gerrans on 5775 8555.
