This document is a refresh of the Sustainability and Climate Change Strategy 2021 developed after the declaration of a climate emergency in 2019 which committed the Council to be net zero by 2030.

Climate and Nature Strategy July 2024
 The refreshed strategy contains the key objectives, targets and milestones that the council, its partners and the community will aim to achieve on the journey to becoming a low carbon district. We want to be a district that plans for the impacts of climate change, and benefits from restored natural habitats and green spaces.  The council will seek to provide leadership and act as an enabler to support neighbourhood, district and regional climate and nature action. 

The strategy contains eight action areas. It can be downloaded below.
