Our Environmental Responsibility


Googong will set new benchmarks for environmental and social sustainability.

Because it’s a completely new, self-contained township we can start afresh at Googong, incorporating a range of sustainability initiatives right from the beginning. These initiatives are innovative and ambitious but also need to be practical, effective and affordable.

As plans for Googong have developed, we’ve looked at water use, energy efficiency, air quality and ecological factors like safeguarding endangered species. We have also focused on creating a sense of community and providing a healthy lifestyle for our residents.

Home-builders wanting to build sustainable homes at the new Googong township now have access to a free advisory service, including architectural advice, Queanbeyan City Council provides the service, which includes free workships, personal consultations and online resources. This is an enormous opportunity for Googon residents. For more information, contact the Queanbeyan City Council via email at Myfanwy.Appleton@qcc.gov.au
