Sustainable Development and Climate Change Strategy

Our current Sustainable Development and Climate Change Strategy, which covers the period from April 2017 to March 2022, is reaching the end of its lifespan. Following a series of public engagement, sessions, focus groups and a consultation survey, a new sustainable development and climate change strategy has been drafted and builds on what has been achieved so far. Your views are welcome on this consultative draft of the next strategy.

The consultative draft sets out the council’s overall strategic approach to sustainable development and addressing the challenges of climate change. It outlines the changes in sustainable development and climate change policy recently. It also outlines the proposed vision, themes and priorities over the next five years, that are based on the feedback from the public engagement session. The consultative draft contains a set of questions based on our approach.  

We have also prepared an Environmental Assessment Report for the strategy of which your views are also welcome.

The consultation for the draft strategy and Environmental report will be open for six weeks from 1 February 2022 to 15 March 2022.  Please email your views to
