Survey on climate change
People are being urged to have their say on two action plans that set out Peterborough’ s vision to live within the resources of one planet by 2050.
The first plan sets out environmental and sustainability targets for the city as a whole and the second plan focuses on activities that can be specifically be undertaken by Peterborough City Council.
The action plans are based on the internationally recog- nised concept of living within the resources of one planet; setting out a vision of a sustainable world where people lead happy and healthy lives within their fair share of the Earth’s resources.
The plans are broken down into ten areas, each containing a vision to be achieved by 2050. Environmental targets include cutting carbon emissions, energy and water use, improving sustainable trans- port andincreasing recycling. Other targets include creating a high skilled/low poverty economy and improving the health and well-being of residents.
The council, which has a leading role in the project, is urging residents and businesses to look at the plans and share their views as part of a consultation. The draft Peterborough Environment Action Plan and questionnaire is available online at www.peterborough.gov.uk/EnvironmentCapitalActionPlan
Hard copies are available on request by contacting the Climate Change Team at enviro nment capital@ peterborough.gov.uk or on 01733 747474.
The deadline for people to have their say is Sunday, February 12. For more details, contact the Climate Change team.
