Moreland Council, at it’s monthly meeting on 9th March 2016, resolved to support Climate Action Moreland’s Build Renewables Replace Hazelwood campaign.

A motion at the council meeting was debated and passed to send a letter to Premier Dan Andrews in support of the campaign.

The motion, passed 7 votes to 2, stated:

“That Council seeks to resolve to provide support for the Climate Action Moreland’s Build Renewable Energy – Replace Hazelwood Campaign by writing to the State Government to replace the Hazelwood power station with renewable energy.”

The action concurrs with other policy action of council including the Moreland CCAP (Community Climate Action Plan), Zero Carbon Evolution (ZCE) 2014 – 2020 plan for community wide greenhouse gas reduction, and the Corporate Carbon Reduction Plan 2015 – 2020 for Council’s own emissions.
