The Sustainable Neighbourhoods Program empowers community members to act on local environmental, sustainability and community initiatives. The program aims to:

  • Protect and enhance the natural environment.
  • Reduce individual, household, and collective resource consumption.
  • Develop community capacity to prepare for and respond effectively to environmental threats such as natural disasters.
  • Encourage community spirit, and increase community resilience, connectedness and wellbeing.
  • Encourage and enable people to participate fully and equitably in community life.
  • Promote community responsibility and management for sustainable outcomes.

Sustainable Neighbourhood groups consist of community volunteers who work together on a range of projects. Each group develops a Sustainable Neighbourhood Action Plan to identify their community vision, values and project priorities.

The Lake Macquarie Sustainable Neighbourhood Alliance Inc. supports Sustainable Neighbourhood Groups across the City.
