“The Government believes that climate change is one of the gravest threats we face” (The Coalition: our programme for government, 2010). Tandridge District Council has produced this Climate Change Action Plan to provide its response to addressing climate change and responding to international, national and local policies and targets on CO2 (carbon dioxide) reductions.
The Action Plan identifies six themes through which the Council can contribute to the overall challenge of mitigating against and adapting to the impacts of a changing climate. These are the high level objectives that will be delivered through various other documents which set out in greater detail the specific work that we plan to undertake to ensure that Tandridge District meets the national target of a 34% reduction in emissions by 2020.
The themes are listed below:
1) Improving energy usage in Council buildings, fleet and services
2) Assist local residents with advice and support in implementing energy efficiency measures
3) Diverting waste from landfill
4) Promoting sustainable energy in new development
5) Promoting sustainable patterns of travel
6) Adapting to the impacts of Climate Change
The draft Climate Change Action Plan was considered by the Planning Policy Committee at its meeting in June 2011 and following this the Council undertook a consultation which ran for a six week period from 24 June to 5 August. A summary of the comments received and the recommended responses are provided and where necessary a recommended 'action' is set out - CCAP analysis of consultation responses.
