Sustainability, Climate Change and Environment Strategy Development

Following a decision taken by the council in November 2019, work is being undertaken by a group of Councillors and Officers to develop a strategy in readiness for May 2021. Cllr Tracey Coulson has been appointed Member Champion for Environment & Climate Change and she chairs this working group. The strategy will explore innovative ways to reduce:

  • the council’s carbon footprint
  • support communities
  • promote bio-diversity
  • boost the economy and encourage job growth
It will support the council’s vision that West Lindsey is a great place to be where people, businesses and communities can thrive and reach their potential.

 
The strategy will be based around a number of key themes that combine to form three distinct areas of focus:

Sustainability, Climate Change and Environment Strategy key themes
Green Strand

We have produced a summary document outlining our current thinking on the strategy which is available in the Downloads section.

As part of this work the council wants to hear ideas from as many people as possible, on actions they, the council and the Government could take to help the climate. A survey has been created which will run from 6 July to 14 August 2020.
