Time is running out to have your say on tackling climate change in Weymouth
As part of Weymouth Town Council’s climate emergency declaration, a survey was launched to gather your views on tackling climate change in Weymouth. The deadline to have your say is Thursday 21st July.
The council wants to work with the community to create a healthier, and more sustainable future for the whole of Weymouth and needs your help to ensure the Climate Change Strategy meets the needs of local communities and reflects people’s priorities.
We’ve so far heard from people who think that public transport and cycle paths should be improved in the local area and that more buildings could have solar panels. What do you think? Let us know by going online to complete the survey.
Cllr David Harris, Leader of the Council and spokesperson on the Climate and Ecological Emergency, said: “A big thank you to everyone who has taken the time to complete our climate change action survey so far, it’s really important we hear your views on this important issue. Weymouth Town Council’s already committed to acting at a local level to reduce its carbon footprint to net zero carbon by 2030 but, we need everyone to play a part to help achieve this.
“If you haven’t already filled in the survey, please visit the Commonplace website by Thursday 21st July, drop a pin on the map and suggest a localised action in your area to help create a greener, cleaner, healthier and more connected Weymouth for all.”
