Thank you to everyone who provided feedback on the pledges. Lake Macquarie City Council has announced the five pledges it will undertake as part of its commitment to the Cities Power Partnership.

After joining the partnership in 2020, Council undertook community consultation, with residents able to participate in a survey and share their opinion on which climate actions are most important for Lake Macquarie.

From this, Council’s Sustainability and Environmental Systems teams were able to decide on the five pledges that will improve our City’s environmental footprint.

Lake Macquarie City Council’s Cities Power Partnership pledges are:

  1. Support cycling through provision of adequate cycle lanes, bike parking and end-of-ride facilities

  2. Develop education and behaviour-change programs to support local residents and businesses to tackle climate change through clean energy, energy efficiency and sustainable transport

  3. Encourage sustainable transport use such as public transport, walking and cycling through council transport planning and design

  4. Support local community renewable energy projects, and encourage investment in community energy

  5. Power council operations by renewable energy, and set targets to increase the level of renewable power for council operations over time
