Edition: July 2023
A draft Climate Action Strategy has now been produced for the District. This builds on the work that the Council and others are already taking on climate change.
It aims for the District to become carbon neutral by 2050, and for our area to be better prepared for the impacts that the changing climate is already having. The draft Strategy includes a 10-year action plan for the Council, our key partners, and the wider community. Achieving this will be challenging. However, it will also create opportunities and benefits, such as improving health and wellbeing, uniting communities, and creating innovation potential for businesses.
A vital component is collaboration, the Council cannot achieve the goals in the draft strategy on its own. Tackling climate change requires action from residents, businesses, community groups and partner organisations. The draft Strategy will facilitate the collective action needed to build a resilient future for generations to come across the entire District.
Have your say
We would like your views on the draft Strategy. These views, and other engagement, will shape the final Strategy. The draft Strategy and an online survey are on the Council's website. This also has information and advice on actions that you can take on climate change, and groups in your area that you could join.
