Greening Strategy community consultation

Alice Springs Town Coun­cil is cur­rent­ly in the process of work­ing with con­sul­tants O2LA, to pro­duce the Alice Springs Green­ing Strat­e­gy and Action Plan. We’ve heard your calls for a green town with shad­ed areas for walk­ing, play­ing and social­is­ing. We’re work­ing on a plan, so come have your say and be part of green­ing Alice Springs.

The Green­ing Strat­e­gy is a 25-year road map that aims to increase pub­lic canopy cov­er in Alice Springs from the cur­rent 15% to 25%. It iden­ti­fies bar­ri­ers and rec­om­mends solu­tions regard­ing gov­er­nance, finance and tech­ni­cal considerations. 

On 12 – 13 Novem­ber 2023, the team held a series of Com­mu­ni­ty Con­sul­ta­tion infor­ma­tion ses­sions to hear what you had to say. Based on this con­sul­ta­tion, Coun­cil has pro­duced a draft Green­ing Strat­e­gy plan - now we need your feed­back before we get to work imple­ment­ing the plan.

We’re seek­ing your feed­back in this sec­ond round of Com­mu­ni­ty Con­sul­ta­tion.
