Climate change action plan

Our action plan shows what we'll be doing to achieve net-zero carbon status by 2030.

We declared a climate emergency in 2019 and we have pledged to take local action to prevent a climate and ecological catastrophe through the development of practices and policies which aim to achieve net-zero carbon status by 2030 and to protect and enhance biodiversity in the district.
 

The action plan

The themes and priorities for the action plan have already been identified in our Climate Crisis Strategy 2021-30.

Our Climate Change Action Plan (PDF) [1MB] (CCAP) is the vital next step in moving on from a statement of intent and overall approach, and into specific actions.

Progress

The Action Plan has 38 components, and the scale of the task to turn each one into a worked-up plan, actually delivering, is considerable.

So far there are:

  • 11 actions for delivery in March 2022 (Phase 2 of the CCAP)
  • 13 actions for delivery by December 2022 (Phase 3 of the CCAP)
  • 10 action points that fall in 2023, 2025 or are ongoing

Three action points are complete.
