Policies on Environment

Protecting our natural resources

Benambra’s natural environment is one of its greatest assets – a driver of tourism, industry and attraction. Like any asset, it must be managed to meet the demands of our modern world.

It’s national and state parks should be treasured, not locked up. The native forests managed with best practice fuel reduction, the use of first Australians fire stick principles, and strategic knowledge of fire behaviour and threat to our communities.

We must make better use of our natural resources through productive recycling and re-use. I am part of a team with the ambitious target to stop any Victorian household rubbish going to landfill within 16 years, promising new technology to burn waste material and generating enough electricity to power two large regional cities.
