Residents and businesses in Three Rivers are being urged to have their say on the district’s plans for tackling climate change.
In 2019 Three Rivers District Council declared a climate emergency, committing to making its own operations carbon neutral by 2030 and to helping the district achieve the government target of net zero carbon by 2050.
The council’s newly published draft Climate Change Strategy sets out the council’s plans for reaching these targets and people can have their say on it by taking part in an online survey.
Councillor Phil Williams, lead member for environmental services and sustainability, said: “We are already one of the greenest councils in the country. But there is a lot more work to be done to help us reach our targets and we cannot do it alone. That’s why we need residents, voluntary organisations, and local businesses to get involved and have their say on this strategy.
“We want to engage the community to create healthier lifestyles, enhance biodiversity and grow our local economy.”
The survey closes on Monday, November 30. To have your say head to surveymonkey.co.uk/r/TRClimate2020
