Climate change - take part in our short survey

Published on 9 May 2022

As part of its work to address the climate emergency the Borough Council has set a target of becoming carbon neutral across the High Peak by 2030 - and now wants to hear from you on the action plan that has been developed to help meet this target.

The Council is responsible for less than 5% of local emissions, so we will only make a difference if residents, businesses, visitors and community groups and the Council work together to achieve the reductions needed.

To meet this target, the Council has developed two action plans. The first plan focuses on the measures the Council will take to eliminate emissions from its services and operations whilst part two looks at the wider Borough along with how residents, businesses and communities can contribute.

Jean Todd, Executive Councillor for Climate Change, Environment and Community Safety, said: "We all have a role to play in tackling climate change so it's important that we all have a say on the sort of actions and activities that we develop and undertake in the High Peak.

"The Council has worked with community groups and others who are interested in what we can do to respond to the climate emergency to develop a community action plan. Now we want to hear wider views from our residents and businesses about what's in that plan, their priorities and their ideas for encouraging communities to get involved.

"There's a short survey on our website and we're asking people to take a few moments to share their thoughts with us - it's only by working together that we will be able to make a difference so I'd like to thank people in advance for getting involved and contributing to addressing the climate challenge that faces us all."

The deadline for responses is 30 May and the link to online survey can be found here where you can also read more about our climate change work.
