Climate change & Energy efficiency
The Climate Change Strategy provides a clear response to the threat of climate change and fulfils the Councils objective to ‘Preserve what is special about the District’ so that it can be enjoyed by future generations.
The Strategy sets out how we will work with our communities and other stakeholders to increase protection of vulnerable areas against the impact of severe weather events and predicted climate change.
Actions recommended within the Strategy will save the Council, District and Householders money and help to meet rising Government Standards through improved Housing and Planning Policies.
The Strategy builds on the steps already taken by the Council to increase recycling levels and reduce energy use.
