Council is responsible for, and committed to, maintaining and enhancing the Shire’s natural environment. Council works closely with community groups and landholders to ensure the protection and enhancement of our beautiful natural environment. 

Council adopted the Noosa Environment Strategy 2019 on 20 June 2019. The Strategy and associated Implementation Plan will help to prioritise investment and deliver an integrated approach to managing Noosa's environment.

In May 2022, the Noosa Environmental Strategy Monitoring Report was presented to Council, that for the first time indicated performance from 2019 to 2021 on available dataset towards achieving the Environmental Strategy.
