Environment Levy Program

Levy funds are a key funding source supporting the delivery of ELS outcomes.

The Environment Levy is funded by ratepayers. Levy funds support the delivery of a range of environmental projects and initiatives.

These are carried out by both Council and the community. Levy partners include landholders, community groups, schools and research organisations. Together we are working to protect and enhance our natural environment.

The Environment Levy Program includes projects and initiatives to:

  • buy protect and enhance environmentally significant land
  • build our knowledge through monitoring and research
  • deliver on-ground environmental projects
  • assist and empower the community to take environmental action
  • undertake other activities to support our natural environment.

Learn more about the achievements in the latest Environment Levy Annual Report.
