If you have a view on tackling climate change you are invited to put forward your opinions.
As part of a new consultation BCP council is seeking feedback on a draft 2050 Climate Action Plan for Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole.
With more than 150 actions that could be taken if the area is to meet its target of becoming carbon neutral by 2050, the draft plan considers a range of proposals that could see significant changes to the area. These range from enhanced sustainable travel options, waste reduction schemes, alternative land uses and nature preservation.
Cllr Mike Greene, portfolio holder for Transport and Sustainability, said, “We recognise that the coronavirus pandemic has meant everyday life has changed for many people, and in line with the government’s steer, now is the time to ensure we plan for a ‘green recovery’ and shape a sustainable future for everyone.
“We all have a part to play in ensuring we stay on the road to zero by 2050 commitment, and as a council we are absolutely committed to taking a balanced approach, ensuring we consider the full impact of any future actions we may need to take to help meet those targets.
“It’s important to recognise that this is about ensuring we take a place-based approach to meet our carbon reduction targets, and that includes working with our key partners and organisations across the public and private sectors. Through the proposed Climate Action Leadership Board, we have an opportunity to consider activities beyond the council’s activities and work together towards a sustainable future.”
In addition to the survey the council will be sharing information and ideas about what you can do to help, how you can get further involved and asking you what you would be prepared to do differently in order to tackle climate change.
