Weymouth Town Council needs your help to reach net zero carbon by 2030
Weymouth Town Council is working to create a healthier, safer, and more sustainable future for the whole of Weymouth – and we’re asking for the public’s views and ideas to help us to achieve this.
The impacts of climate change are already causing serious damage around the world. In response to the climate crisis, Weymouth Town Council declared a climate and ecological emergency and are committed to acting at a local level to reduce the council’s carbon footprint to net zero carbon by 2030.
Do you have an idea or suggestion for tackling the climate crisis in Weymouth? If so, you can complete a survey which helps to map things like which local greenspaces are of value to you and your local community? What you think of local bus and cycling provision, for example.
Use the interactive Commonplace map to give your thoughts on these questions and more. Drop a pin on the map and complete the survey to help us create a greener, cleaner, healthier and more connected Weymouth for all.
Cllr David Harris, Leader of the Council and spokesperson on the Climate and Ecological Emergency, said: “Since declaring a Climate and Ecological Emergency, the council have been working to reduce its carbon emissions. We’re now asking the local community what local actions or changes they would like to see in Weymouth to counter climate change.
“To enable Weymouth to reduce its carbon emissions it will require us all to do our bit. We need your help to ensure our Climate Change Strategy meets the needs of our local community and reflects your priorities, so we’ve launched this survey to gather your views. Fill out the survey now to make sure your voice is heard.”
