Goal 5 Projects



G5.P1 Whole of Waste Cycle Planning



  • Research and analyse the costs and benefits of innovative, smart waste management solutions that could be applied to Inner Melbourne and the wider metro catchment. Understanding how waste management practices, technologies and services can change to meet the significant growth and densification of Inner Melbourne.




G5.P2 Whole of Water Cycle Planning



  • Evaluate, develop and implement whole of water cycle plans for all Urban Renewal Areas (URAs). Each URA will improve on previous best practice examples in Australia. The IMAP Councils will adopt integrated water cycle management practices and leverage off projects to be delivered by URAs and the Victoria Water plan, leading to fund infrastructure of integrated water cycle management.




G5.P3 IMAP Water Use Targets



  • Develop consistent minimum targets for water reduction. Approaches, consideration and timing will align with G5.P4 IMAP GREENHOUSE GAS EMISSION TARGETS.




G5.P4 IMAP Greenhouse Gas Emission Targets



  • Develop consistent minimum targets for greenhouse gas abatement. Approaches, consideration and timing are essentially the same as G5.P3 IMAP WATER USE TARGETS.




G5.P5 Implement Environmental Sustainable Design (ESD) and Green Demonstration Projects



  • Continue the promotion of Environmental Sustainable Design (ESD) principles including; encouraging green roofs and walls through policies and programs across Inner Melbourne, a regional scale retrofit program for commercial and high density residential development, and the use of Green Star ratings for new and retrofitted buildings and infrastructure.
  • Establish guidelines for Council projects and advocate for the implementation of ESD standards into all municipal planning schemes.
  • Complete ESD related projects that create awareness, interest in ESD and green building such as - establishing green building awards; demonstration projects of green roofs/walls; broaden the content and distribution of the ESD factsheets project.
