What’s it all about?

In 2013, Hamilton City Council formed the Sustainability Advisory Panel. The purpose of the panel was to undertake an annual technical assessment of Council’s Sustainable Hamilton Strategy.

In March 2014, the panel presented a report to council with a number of recommendations including that sustainability should be an overarching framework for all economic, social and environmental strategies.

In May 2015, the panel also submitted their report to Council’s 10-Year Plan consultation process to have it formally received by Council. You can access the panel’s report here

A summary was presented to the August subcommittee – see here.

These are exciting times! The panel’s report and recommendations are currently being considered by council. The CEO will be reporting back on the panel’s report at a council meeting on Tuesday the 23rd of February (meeting starts at 1.30pm, so pop it in your diary now!).

And even more exciting news...Mayor Julie Hardaker recently signed the Local Government Leaders Climate Change Declaration – so the time is ripe to get behind Hamilton City Council and support this wonderful direction. Here is your opportunity to get involved…
