Environmental Action Plans

Closes 13 Feb 2022

Opened 16 Dec 2021

Overview

The subject of environmental sustainability has never been so important, and environmental matters have become increasingly high profile in recent years. Environmental sustainability is a top priority for the Council and we have set ourselves some very challenging targets in this area. Our new Green Plan sets the holistic vision for how the Council will become more environmentally sustainable and identifies five key priority areas: 

  • Achieving carbon neutrality and tackling climate change
  • Improving air quality
  • Tackling fuel poverty
  • Minimising waste
  • Protecting and enhancing biodiversity. 

Our previous joint Climate Change and Air Quality Action Plan, and our previous Biodiversity Action Plan, have all now reached their  conclusion. Through these previous plans we have delivered significant progress, but we now need to build on this and go further. We have set new targets and need new plans to help deliver them, so we are taking this opportunity to reimagine our overall approach and engage with local residents and stakeholders to help us design our new action plans. The subjects of Climate Change, Air Quality, and Biodiversity are each crucial in their own right, but also share some common links, so we are developing these new plans and consulting on them together. Please take the time to read the summaries of each action plan before responding to the survey:

When responding to this survey, you will be able to choose which action plans you answer questions on by answering a question at the beginning of each section.

These summaries cover all the key themes and high-level actions from the full draft action plans, which will be further developed through the course of this engagement process before final versions are released.
