Working to achieve better environmental management outcomes in line with the City of Canning’s Strategic Community Plan’s goals, the Local Environment Management Strategy provides a framework to help inform and develop plans.

The goals of the Local Environment Management Strategy relate to:

  • Protecting, preserving and promoting our natural places, flora and fauna;
  • Sustainably managing resources; and
  • A sustainable and environmentally aware community.
