An essential foundation of a sustainable future for people is a City that integrates the natural environment into its built urban form.
Council's aspiration of the City is to build a green, resilient, garden city which in turn provides a quality lifestyle for our community. In a Garden City, you will directly benefit through the health, social and economic services that a green urban environment provides.
