We are committed to tackling climate change.
We want to play our full role in protecting the environment. Our draft Carlisle Local Environment (Climate Change) Strategy (available as a downloadable document bottom of this page) shows our commitment to the issue.
The overall purpose of the strategy is to co-ordinate a programme of action, communication and engagement to encourage behavioural change.
The strategy is a starting point, a first step towards a clear, confident approach to the challenge of climate change. An approach that will build commitment to behavioural change.
In late August and early September 2020 we sought views on the draft strategy and its proposed actions. The strategy was accompanied by a consultation document.
Following the consultation, we have finalised the documents for Executive to recommend for Council to approve. The Council will lead by example with a clear strategy and a dynamic action plan that is consistent with the targets set and resources available.
The strategy is accompanied by an action plan, this provides more detail on how the strategy and the objectives will be delivered. In the action plan each objective has a set of actions listed under themes with a timescale for delivery. Each action will be linked to the carbon footprint and baselining work, using the scopes and options.
The action plan is a working document, the latest version can be found in the downloadable documents at the bottom of this page.
