Ambitious ‘green’ plan for district
West Lindsey District Council has unveiled a 15 year plan to become a ‘green’ district, where people want to live, work and visit.
The Green Strategy will explore innovative ways to support communities, boost the economy, encourage job growth and reduce the council’s carbon footprint. You can find a copy of the strategy listed in the downloads section.
West Lindsey’s Green Member Champion, Cllr Howitt-Cowan said: “This is an exciting opportunity for the council to deliver a series of bold and innovative schemes that will help residents and businesses. Our aspiration is this strategy will help us become a leader in green issues and bring jobs and growth to the area.”
To achieve this, it will focus on three areas:
Seek solutions to the rising energy costs, encourage communities to share opportunities and support each other. Address fuel poverty and reduce waste by promoting re-using and recycling.
Encourage new business in the ‘green’ market place to create new jobs/opportunities and support existing businesses to cope with rising energy costs.
Reduce the council’s energy costs by using renewable solutions, change the way it works to become more efficient and reduce costs.
