Climate change strategy plans

Public consultation on climate change strategy for South Holland has been launched by the district council.

Residents are invited to share views on plans to work towards the country’s net zero by 2050 target set by national government.

Emissions in South Holland have dropped 25.8 per cent between 2005 and 2019, though that’s less than Boston (35.3 per cent) and East Lindsey (27.3 per cent).

Some 32 per cent of South Holland’s emissions come from transport.

A district council spokesman said: “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, Boston and South Holland collectively working.

“The strategy is one of the first joint pieces of work by the newly formed South & East Lincolnshire Councils Partnership.

“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 the spring to drive delivery of the climate change strategy.

“Representatives from key sectors will be invited to join SELCAN with ongoing administrative support provided by the South and East Lincolnshire Councils Partnership.”
