What We Do

What we try to do at Eco Advocacy

We support environmental sustainability in numerous ways.

  1. TRAINING: We offer training on issues such as Biodiversity, Invasive Species and environmental/ planning law. All groups benefit from this training and we conduct training at schools (primary and secondary), tidy downs and other community groups.
  2. PLANNING: We can look at large planning proposals and form an opinion as to whether they will adversely affect the environment and assist in preparing a submission thereon.
  3. ENFORCEMENT: We are always anxious to help people with enforcement issues which often occur having regard to environmental and planning issues.

We try to help and share our experience with other N.G.O.'s together with concerned citizens and organisations.

We have developed and maintain a large database of precedents together with extensive records of developments on a wide variety of areas and are skilled in drafting submissions and will advise on what other specialists might be required to strengthen a given submission. As well as offering our experience in a consultancy capacity, we can also take out a practicing certificate in either jurisdiction at any time, should a task merit that.
