  • considering the implications of development proposals, and applying conditions to prevent environmental harm, within the broader context of their implications for sustainable development
  • supporting and promoting activities which are recognised as essential for the sustainability of our society into the future, such as energy efficiency, waste minimisation and management, resource efficiency, education and innovation
  • providing incentives that further these objectives.
