South Holland public asked for views on climate change strategy
Council chiefs have launched a public consultation on their draft climate change strategy.
The consultation will seek the views of South Holland residents on plans to 'achieve a more sustainable future' across the South & East Lincolnshire sub-region with East Lindsey and Boston.
The aim is for the three areas to work together on how the area can meet the national 'net zero' agenda.
One idea floated to help with this is for our haulage sector to embrace alternative fuels.
The strategy is one of the first joint pieces of work by the newly formed South & East Lincolnshire Councils Partnership.
A council statement explained: "It will seek to address the challenges and opportunities associated with key themes such as transport, the built environment, water and the natural environment."
A new South & East Lincolnshire Climate Action Network (SELCAN) is due to be launched in Spring 2022 to drive delivery of the climate change strategy.
Representatives from business, private and community sectors will be asked to join the new body - supported by the councils.
A copy of the draft Climate Change Strategy together with the survey can be found at www.sholland.gov.uk/ClimateConsultation.
The consultation will be open until Friday February 4.
