Locals urged to have their say

Locals are being encouraged to have their say on Strathbogie Shire Council declaring a Climate Emergency.

At Council’s March meeting a Notice of Motion was lodged by Cr Sally Hayes-Burke and Cr Reg Dickinson to declare a Climate Emergency.

The Notice of Motion was deferred until the April meeting, with Councillors wanting to hear the community’s views before forming a decision and voting on the matter.

“We thank everyone who has shared their thoughts on our Notice of Motion so far,” Cr Hayes-Burke said.

“Through our Share Strathbogie sessions, we are hearing that addressing Climate Change is important to our community.

“Our goal in declaring a Climate Emergency is to send a clear message to our community that we are serious about mitigating against the risks that Climate Change pose for the social, economic, and environmental prosperity of the community.”

Council has prepared frequently asked questions which are available on

“We hope these FAQs provide the further information our community is looking for,” she said.

“Declaring a Climate Emergency means the actions and outputs sit firmly with our organisation.

“It’s about determining what Council can do to reduce its carbon footprint and emissions. You may say we’re getting our house in order.”
