Green travel for council staff in mind

Have your say

THE councillor in charge of setting South Holland’s green agenda has vowed to look at a travel plan when money is available.

Spalding resident David Hurdle asked why the council had not got a staff green travel plan in place to set an example.

The new cabinet member responsible, Coun Roger Gambba-Jones, responded by agreeing that it is an initiative he’d support to reduce the carbon footprint, when resources are available.

Coun Gambba-Jones praised officer Jacqui Dolby in working on the carbon management plan and revealed her role has now been made full time to reflect the council’s commitment on the matter.

Coun Gambba-Jones also vowed to promote the need for wider recycling to reduce the amount of waste the district sends for landfill.

The question was raised as part of our ‘GP surgery’ feature last month.
