Surf Coast Shire Council remains committed to preserving and enhancing the natural local environment. The Surf Coast Shire is an area of high environmental significance with spectacular physical features, including a large coastline and state and national parks, unique natural character and biological diversity.

As owner or manager of less than one per cent of land in the Surf Coast Shire, it is critical that Council works in partnership with the community and other agencies to oversee and protect the natural environment, particularly through the management of public open spaces and the supervision of planning controls. An important focus is managing invasive pests, plants and animals.
