Cessnock City Local Environment Protection

Encourage Cessnock City Council

To see a change we need to start somewhere that has power. If we want to make a change in our local environment the best way to do so is to encourage Cessnock City Council to put measures in action. By informing ourselves on the current matters, backing our points with reliable data and opposing realistic plans and actions we can make an impact on society. What we can do to encourage Cessnock City Council to take action may include:

  • Protests
  • Attend town meetings and discuss issues there.

  • Make the citizens aware of problems in our local community.
  • Join awareness and environmental groups to plan events to take action.

Research (Reliable data)

We can inform ourselves of present and future environmental problems by using reliable resources. Reliable data is crucial for making a difference as we become aware of the problems and have evidence, as such, to back up our points. The Nature Conservation Council, Wilderness Society, World Wildlife Fund or WWF and the National Parks Association of NSW all claim that there is incomplete ecosystem mapping, multi-year delay in publication of data and reports, unreliable clearing detection, inconsistent across jurisdictions, inadequate presentation of data in reports and finally inadequate compliance technology and systems presented by the NSW and Queensland Government’s.

They believe that ‘Significant opportunities exist to support landholders and Indigenous communities to develop revenue streams to repair degraded landscapes, reduce carbon emissions from deforestation and land clearing, and sequester carbon from the atmosphere’. They agree that the fund shall creation job opportunities in sustainable land management in the NSW region. They say to maximize the impact of the fund it should be modeled on Queensland Government’s nascent $500 million Land Restoration Fund and to avoid the mistakes of the Australian Government’s Emissions Reduction Fund.
