State of the Environment Reporting provides environmental snapshot
The Regional State of the Environment (SoE) 2016 reports on our environment’s condition at a regional and local level, covering local government areas from Port Macquarie-Hastings in the south to Tweed in the north.
The report is a result of collaboration between 12 general councils, three county councils and several NSW Government agencies. It provides a report card on our vegetation and soil health, habitat restoration, water quality and marine health, energy and waste, and wastewater.
SoE reporting was once the domain of individual councils but as part of NSW Government reforms to the planning and reporting framework, local councils were encouraged to produce SoE reports at a regional level.
