SUSTAINABLE GLENORCHY News

A group of local residents, who are concerned about the consequences of Council's proposals, have formed an incorporated society called Sustainable Glenorchy.

Sustainable Glenorchy aims to ensure that outcomes from local government decisions that affect the people and the environment of Glenorchy are:

  • made with meaningful public involvement and discussion with reliable information through transparent processes and integrity
  • consistent with the principles of sustainable management and the Community Plan

Sustainable Glenorchy was born out of frustrations in dealing with the Council about the impending wastewater scheme in Glenorchy. We are a group of 50 (and growing) and fully understand and support the need for a community wastewater scheme for Glenorchy. However, we are really worried that not only will Council’s decisions result in a scheme that is far more expensive than it need be but it also won’t address the list of issues that the residential and business community have repeatedly said are important to them.

The Committee is: Bruce Farmer (Chair), Trish Fraser (Secretary), Mary Strang (Treasurer), Paul Fraser, Mike Spencer, John Glover, Niki Gladding, Paul Chapman (Tussock).
