Residents, local businesses, interest groups and organisations have an opportunity to give their views on local action plans to tackle climate change and air quality issues. From Monday 5 October to Sunday 15 November, the council is asking people to have their say on its draft plan to make Basingstoke and Deane carbon neutral by 2030.

The Climate Change and Air Quality Strategy has been produced in response to the council’s Climate Emergency Declaration and sets out how the council can lead, enable and inspire others to help achieve its targets.

The draft strategy will set the agenda for the next 10 years, with clear goals focusing on six key areas: action by all; buildings; transport; zero carbon electricity; waste and consumption; and the natural environment. It sets out where the council can make changes, where it can help others to make changes and where it can encourage and inspire change.

People can read the draft strategy and have their say at www.basingstoke.gov.uk/climate-consultation  Alternatively they can call 01256 844844 to request the survey in a paper version or different readable format.
