Environment Advisory Committee

The Portfolio Advisory Committees (PACs) support strategy and policy development and provide an opportunity for community input into Council decision making.

Each PAC is chaired by a Councillor, and is made up of community members from a diverse range of backgrounds, with knowledge and expertise in different areas. They meet for a minimum of three meetings per year over the four-year Council term, with additional meetings scheduled if required.

The Environment PAC

Aims to create a low carbon, biodiverse and resource efficient city which manages open space, waterways and waste in a sustainable manner. 

Our purpose

The Environment portfolio deals with environmental planning policies and programs.

This portfolio supports the preservation of Moonee Valley's heritage and the creation of high quality natural and environmentally advanced built environments. It leads Council on creating a climate adapted, low carbon, water sensitive, biodiverse and resource efficient city which manages its open space, waterways and waste in a sustainable manner.

The portfolio also supports people in the community having the tools and knowledge they need to live sustainably
