Environment

The preservation and economic management of the environment of the Fleurieu Peninsula has become increasingly important for Council, local groups, business, concerned residents and ratepayers. Preservation of the environment is managed under the Environment Protection Act. The objects of the Environment Protection Act are:

  • To promote the principles of ecologically sustainable development.
  • To ensure that all reasonable and practicable steps are taken to protect, restore, and enhance the quality of the environment having regard for the principles of ecologically sustainable development.

Conservation Parks, water quality, access and egress, landcare and marine environments are just a few of the issues impacting on the district.
