THE City of Cockburn has scored a number of awards for its work creating a healthy and safe environment for children.
Putting in place policies influenced by consultation with children from the community helped the City secure the overall Local Government Children’s Environment and Health Award.
The City was also announced as the winner for the Climate Change, Promoting Healthy Behaviours and Shade in Public Places categories.
Cockburn Mayor Logan Howlett said the City was pleased with the haul.
“The awards showcase the many exciting and innovative community facilities, programs and activities that local governments have created across the State,” he said.
“The winners are really the families and children who get to play and explore as they develop into the big kids of tomorrow.
