Council community initiatives

EnvironemntalInitiativeWilloughby Council is still very active promoting environmental initiatives.

In the Chatswood Mall this week is an interactive display on environmental issues concerning plastic products. Council became involved with such issues many decades ago via its involvement with the now defunct Lane Cove River Catchment Management Committee.

Also, if you look closely at the concrete ‘seating’ inStormwaterManagement the mall you may notice the following initiative.The water flowing in the Mall is captured by the garden beds, filtered through the soil then released as ‘cleaned’ water into Scott’s Creek.
