Managing Park and Open Spaces in a Drying-Climate Policy - City of Subiaco
  • Start year: 2011
  • Type: Policy/Strategies/Action Plans
  • Status:

A drying-climate policy was prepared and adopted by council
in December 2011 to reduce the use of non-sustainable
water sources, where possible, within the municipality. It allows
for the City to investigate and implement alternative
water sources for irrigation, such as stormwater and treated
wastewater. It also outlines the City’s Water-Sensitive Urban
Design approach, including the development of ‘blue corridors,’
defined as vegetation areas designed to detain and
infiltrate stormwater runoff.
