Climate Emergency

Climate Emergency

Overview

In April 2019, the Council unanimously adopted a motion to declare a Climate Emergency and to achieve zero carbon by 2030.  Following the Councils declaration of a Climate Emergency, the Climate Emergency Working Group was established and recommended to Full Council on 15 October 2019 that a Climate Change Action Plan be developed.

The first draft of the Climate Change Action Plan has been prepared and has recently been out to public consultation. The consultation responses are being reviewed and the updated Climate Change Action Plan will be published shortly (early 2022).
