Infrastructure Sustainability 

Parkes Shire Council is committed to achieving sustainable development, and the benefits go beyond the natural environment. Sustainable development is focused on meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. It is founded on three pillars; environmental, social and economic, with a balanced treatment of all three aspects being the ideal.

Sustainability isn't only measured by the final outcomes; sustainability targets are implemented through every stage of the project life cycle including design and construction as well as long-term operation. Parkes Shire Council has committed to sustainable development for the following infrastructure projects.
