State of the Environment (SoE) reporting is a continuous process that provides the community with a summary of the physical condition of the environment within the Ashfield Local Government Area (LGA). It also informs the community and Council on the impacts we are having on our environment.
The SoE also highlights the activities of Council, the community and businesses have undertaken to protect and enhance our environment. Council uses the information contained within the SoE Reports to develop environmental initiatives and targets for both corporate and community action.
In NSW Councils are required to produce an annual SoE Report as part of the Local Government Act 1993. The Act requires councils to produce a comprehensive report every four years in the November following local council elections. Supplementary reports are prepared in the intervening years.
