This forum is aimed at anyone who feels strongly about the climate emergency that we are all facing, and would like to be involved in the local response to it. It is designed to be approached in a spirit of cooperation so that we both help and advise the council in their implementation, and also hold them to account on delivery.
The document will be available to read on the council’s website – cabinet papers a week before the 15th June, so please read if you can and come to the workshop that most interests you with ideas to help achieve their stated aims.
