Environmental Sustainability Strategy

We believe a great city is one that grows better every day and we need to ensure that the natural environment creates a better quality of life, not just for people, but for all living things.

The City of Parramatta Environmental Sustainability Strategy outlines our four key environmental directions and 20 priority goals as our City grows, so that all of us - residents, workers and visitors - feel the benefits of our growing City.

Environmental sustainability is maintaining all the things we love about where we live, work and play. It’s about preserving everything that makes our City great, even as it grows.

City of Parramatta Stretch Reconciliation Action Plan

This document demonstrates how City of Parramatta Council will lead by example to advance the important cause of Reconciliation.

The Plan lists key actions to recognise and celebrate our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander community, to ensure Council is culturally aware and responsive, and addressing key areas of disadvantage experienced by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

Our aim is to go beyond “acknowledging” our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and to embed Indigenous issues and interests right across Council through corporate documents, policies and projects.
