Climate Change Strategy

We the undersigned petition the council to Immediately make carbon reduction the top priority in every council policy, plan and decision, and agree, by end 2021, comprehensive carbon reduction actions with annual targets, to deliver a carbon neutral county by 2030.

We welcome the commitment in the draft Climate Strategy to net zero for Wiltshire by 2030 but deplore the lack of any delivery plans. It is now 2½ years since Wiltshire Council acknowledged a climate emergency. No meaningful action has yet been taken to reduce countywide emissions, and there are now only 8 years left to achieve the goal of 2030 net zero. We have seen from the Council’s, business and public responses to the pandemic what can be achieved when we all work together. As Wiltshire citizens we are ready to play our part but we cannot do it alone. It’s time for Wiltshire Council to show leadership with a proper countywide plan to tackle the climate crisis that we can all get behind.

This ePetition ran from 13/09/2021 to 31/10/2021 and has now finished.
