Environmental Protection: Conserving the natural environment
The City of Unley respects Unley's heritage and natural areas that reinforce Unley's city amenity and village charm. Conservation and recycling will characterise all aspects of council operations.
We focus on trees, plants, birds and animals to encourage a richer biodiversity, improve watercourses, underground water and water use management, protecting the soil and air quality, noise management, environmental sustainability and management, waste management and recycling and build a community that values its local environment.
Natural resources are finite and with redevelopment, the need to preserve the natural environment is even greater.
There is a growing need to implement programs such as preserving remnant vegetation and indigenous planting; encouraging the use of community gardens; maintaining significant and appropriate mature trees; reducing excess waste generation; minimising unsustainable increases in the consumption of resources (water, energy); and restoring creeks.
