Detailed description

Council is creating its first iCEP and when complete in mid-2020, it will be Council’s roadmap for caring for the natural environment while meeting the challenges of a changing climate.

This comprehensive integrated environmental plan is required to tackle mounting environmental challenges.

Waratah-Wynyard Mayor Robby Walsh acknowledged higher fire danger, changing rainfall patterns and beach erosion are already a reality in Waratah-Wynyard, but said that Council is optimistic about the future.

The iCEP will be a living document, renewed and updated every five years, to adapt to emerging issues and opportunities.
