Strategies and Guidelines

Waste Wise Events Policy

In September 2019 Frankston City Council adopted its Waste Wise Events Policy. Council is committed to ensuring that waste is minimised and effectively managed at Council events, as well as at events that are held on Council managed land. 

Towards Zero Emissions Plan

In January 2019, Council adopted its Towards Zero Emissions Plan (2019-2023). The new plan replaces Council’s former Carbon Neutral Action Plan. The Towards Zero Emissions Plan sets out Council's target of zero net emissions (carbon neutrality) by 2025, and includes a range of actions across Council operations, plus actions to support our community to transition to a low carbon future.

Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation Plan

Frankston City Council has adopted the 'Climate Change Impacts and Adaptation Plan' to help Council and community facilitate action and reduce vulnerability to the impacts of climate change.

Environmental Sustainability Policy

Council's Policy outlining our commitment to Environmental Sustainability and demonstrating leadership and best practice in partnership with our community. 

ESD Standards for Council Buildings Policy

Council’s Environmentally Sustainable Design (ESD) Standards for Council Buildings Policy sets environmental performance targets for all Council building projects, beyond the minimum requirements of the National Construction Code. The Policy was first adopted by Council in 2015, and later revised with a new Policy that was adopted by Council in February 2020. 

Greening our Future - Frankston City's Environment Strategy

Council's 10-year municipal-wide Environment Strategy which provides a framework for Council and community actions in protecting the natural environment and using resources in a sustainable manner.

Integrated Water Action Plan

The Integrated Water Action Plan 2016-2026 was adopted by Council in June 2016 to enhance Council’s strategic and practical approach to integrated and sustainable water management. It focuses on actions that Council can deliver to achieve integrated water management outcomes for the municipality over the next 10 years.

Street Tree Master Policy

This is a strategic plan to improve the quality and quantity of street trees, aiming to vegetate most of the nature strips in the city with canopy trees within 15 years.

The Street Tree Management Policy was developed to provide a framework for making structured, consistent and environmentally sound management decisions for all Council-owned or managed street and roadside trees.

Vegetation Study

A municipal-wide assessment of native vegetation on areas of land greater than .5 hectare. This data will form the basis of the Environmentally Sensitive Overlays in the Frankston Planning Scheme.

Waste Minimisation and Management Plan

The 5-year Waste Minimisation and Management Plan guides Frankston City Council towards best practice in waste minimisation, management and recycling services. The Plan includes key actions, targets and initiatives to support our local community in reducing costs, enhancing resource recovery and reducing waste to landfill.
