Ecologically Sustainable Development
Australia's National Strategy for Ecologically Sustainable Development (1992) defines ecologically sustainable development as:
using, conserving and enhancing the community's resources so that ecological processes, on which life depends, are maintained, and the total quality of life, now and in the future, can be increased.
Development of the Woollahra area has been steadily increasing since European settlement in 1790, particularly since being declared a local government area in the 1860's.
Today, while this increasing urbanisation brings with it many economic and social benefits, the prosperity of our area is underpinned by the need for a healthy environment. As the local government authority for this area, we seek to manage the development of the land in an environmentally and socially responsible manner.
