Sustainability in its broadest sense requires community engagement and participation.
Urban parks are ideal places to involve the broader community in a range of urban, environmental and catchment issues, and to encourage participation in solutions to those problems. As part of our Environmental Policy, we aim to ensure all stakeholders are included in decision making processes to achieve environmentally responsible development and events.
