The City is taking action to adapt to climate change. Our Climate Change Adaptation Plan uses a risk management approach to identify what climate risks are a priority and what actions are required.
It focuses on monitoring, implementing and reporting key initiatives within natural and built environments and through community programs.
Climate Change Adaptation Plan
The City works hard to reduce unnecessary water consumption and is now recognised and endorsed by the Water Corporation as a Waterwise Council.
In addition, the City’s Water Smart Parks program is reducing water use by replacing surplus grass with native plants, improving irrigation systems and using moisture probes, so we only water when the soil is dry.
Street Tree planting program
The Street Tree Planting Program began in 2013 and aims to create shady and more attractive residential streetscapes within the City of Stirling. It encourages residents to become custodians for their streetscape and play an active role in planting and caring for street trees.
