Councillor Mary Marshall, Portfolio Holder for the Environment says:
“As a Borough Council we are well-placed, not just to reduce our own environmental impact but to help the whole borough become more sustainable. If we make the right policies and decisions we can help reduce carbon emissions, improve air quality, promote energy efficiency, reduce waste and more.”
“This declaration is only the beginning, we now need to develop our approach to identify the practical steps we need to make environmental sustainability business as usual for us. I look forward to presenting a report to full Council in February 2020 which outlines how we are going to achieve this.”
The strategy will be presented to Cabinet and Council in February 2020 and will build on our existing initiatives.
