About this Site

This website contains information about the Sustainable Homes & Communities Program, which relaunched in 2011 thanks to further funding from the Victorian State Government's Sustainability Fund and Banyule and Darebin Councils.

The site is optimised for home use and graphics have been saved with a low resolution to aid download speeds.

Site Navigation
The website has been designed for easy access and navigation. You can browse through categories on the top and left hand side of your screen, or use the A-Z Index or Search to find specific topics.

Updating information is an ongoing process and all attempts were made to ensure the information is current and accurate.

All images are reduced in size and number to allow faster download. Alternative text is also provided for each image.

The Search function is database driven and allows users to search web pages and document titles. Access to the Search function is available on every page, on the top right hand corner.
