Climate change 570x310

Have you had your say on the council’s environmental plan?

28 November 2019

Cheshire East Council has a live consultation on its environmental strategy and is urging everyone to have their say on its priorities and vision for the future before it closes on Sunday 1 December.

Six ambitious priority areas have been developed, following the council’s declaration of a climate change emergency.

They are:

  • Cheshire East will be a carbon neutral council by 2025;
  • Waste and pollution will be reduced;
  • Air quality will improve;
  • Increase sustainable transport and travel;
  • Sensitive and sustainable new development; and
  • Protect and enhance our natural environment.

Paul Bayley, director of environment and neighbourhood services for Cheshire East Council, said: “We welcome any comments on the strategy and our commitments to meet the challenge of climate change and reduce carbon emissions. We have an ambitious target of being carbon neutral by 2025.

“However, the council only accounts for one per cent of the carbon emissions across the borough of Cheshire East. We also want to work with our partners, communities, businesses and residents to help them reduce their carbon emissions and welcome any suggestions for how we can do this.”
