Woollahra Municipal Council Launches Sustainable Building Advisory Service

Woollahra within objectives that form part of Woollahra Council’s Carbon Reduction Strategy, which was adopted in June 2010, has formed a partnership with independent advisers Archicentre to offer a new Sustainable Building Advisory Service (SBAS).

The initiative aims to encourage residents to integrate eco-friendly and sustainable features when building or renovating their home.

Woollahra Mayor Susan Wynne said Council has invested $25,000 to offer the service to 50 residents in the 2011/2012 financial year.

“Council is proactively setting an example to the community and other local government areas by introducing a service that encourages sustainable design,” she said. “The initiative will support residents in reducing their environmental footprint which is a win-win-win for the environment, residents and developers.”
