Update to Council's Sustainable Council Building Policy coming.


Council's 200-plus buildings play an important role in achieving the community’s long-term vision for Boroondara. These building assets require a significant amount of financial and material resource to build, operate and maintain over their lifecycle.

The Sustainable Council Buildings Policy sets out clear commitments for achieving improved sustainability standards in the way Council’s buildings are planned, designed, built, used and maintained.

The policy confirms that Council building projects must integrate consideration of their external landscape and public realm context, as well as increasingly frequent and extreme weather events (heatwaves, storm events etc) predicted as a result of climate change.

The policy does not cover sustainability standards for privately owned buildings.
