Wiltshire Council’s Climate Strategy 'consultation'

September 1, 2021 8:20 PM
By WC

Wiltshire Council has started an engagement exercise on its emerging Climate Strategy, which sets out how the council - and Wiltshire as a whole - can tackle climate change over the next five years.

The engagement runs until 11.59pm on Sunday 17 October, and people can comment on the draft strategy document, and attend a number of online and in-person sessions to find out more.

At the same time, the council will be consulting on 'Our Natural Environment Plan', a Green and Blue Infrastructure (GBI) Strategy for Wiltshire, which looks at the future for Wiltshire's natural environmental assets.

In 2019, the council declared a climate emergency and committed to becoming carbon neutral as an organisation by 2030.

You can share your views on both draft strategies by taking the online surveys, and there will also be a series of online and in-person events that people can join to find out more and ask questions. To join these events, you must sign up online in advance. The full schedule is:

  • 9 September, 6pm, online launch event with Claire Perry O'Neill.
  • 15 September, 10.30am to 11.30am, first engagement webinar.
  • 30 September, 7pm to 8pm, second engagement webinar.

Libraries drop-in sessions:

  • 14 September, 10am to 12 noon, Salisbury Library
  • 23 September, 10am to 12 noon, Devizes Library
  • 27 September, 10am to 12 noon, Chippenham Library
  • 7 October, 10am to 12 noon, Trowbridge Library
