Dorset Council has published its draft Climate Emergency Strategy and Action Plan and wants to hear from individuals and organisations. We would like to encourage everyone to give their views using the online form and you can find the full document on the county web site. It is broken down into sections, including renewable energy, buildings, food and drink, transport, waste and water. The closing date is 20th January 2021. Turn Lyme Green will be sending a response to the proposals.
There are other ways you can find out more and voice your opinions. Dorset Climate Action Network (Dorset CAN) has recently been formed as an umbrella organisation for a host of environment groups in the county. Its first task is gathering views on the county consultation. TLG will be sharing its views with them.
Also Peoples Assemblies are being organised in November. They are holding 4 assemblies to get as many people as possible to attend: Sat 21st, Mon 23rd, Wed 25th and Thurs 26th. Detail from the Dorset Action web site. They write, “The consultation is our chance to tell the Council what we think of the action plan.”.
