Oaklands Green is proud to play its part in The City of Marion’s game-changing plan – to become carbon-neutral by the year 2030


Green by name and green by nature


Word is certainly spreading about the transformation happening at Oaklands Green. But we’re delighted to see that it’s our entire suburb that is embracing this age of change. On the back of a commitment that began over 7 years ago, the City of Marion has announced a plan that will see it become carbon neutral by 2030.

There are two ways to achieve carbon neutrality – reduce carbon emissions and increase natural foliage – and the Marion Council is well aware of both. This is fantastic news on so many fronts.

Aside from the complete transformation of our street lighting to energy-efficient LEDs, it means more tree-lined, shady footpaths – and the preservation and expansion of green spaces, parklands and reserves.

It means building smarter, healthier public buildings, like libraries and schools, with improved air flow and the use of natural light – both of which are known to stimulate and improve our wellbeing.

It means our city, our suburb and our neighbourhood will become an even more desirable place to live, to visit and enjoy. Not only for today’s residents, but for the generations to come.
