Environment strategy

Our local environment and the role we all play in protecting it

Sooner or later a damaged environment will hold back economic growth and lower the quality of life for everyone.

Sustainable development is about strong economic growth and community development, which protects and improves the borough’s environment and therefore making sure that there is a better quality of life for everyone, now and for the future.

Environmental policy

Our environmental policy was signed by council leaders in May 2002 and commits us to protecting the environment and making provision for the future.

We have agreed to set a target for the borough to reduce carbon emissions by 80% by 2050.
