– Local Authority Urge Residents To Have Their Say

East Riding of Yorkshire Council is inviting residents to provide their views to the Council on climate change in the East Riding through an interactive online questionnaire. 

Residents will be able to use an interactive map of East Riding to highlight locations where there are opportunities for further positive climate action and express any opinions about climate change more generally through a series of questions.

This information will help shape the Climate Change Strategy for the East Riding while the survey will remain live online until Sunday 27 February 2022.

Councillor , the portfolio holder for environment and climate change at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said:

“Climate change is a complex issue, but by working together we can tackle the climate crisis head-on. The council is currently developing its climate change strategy and would like to hear ideas from our residents on how we might tackle the climate emergency together. I would encourage all residents in the East Riding to follow the links to the survey and take part – it really is an opportunity for you to have your say.”

The Council is committed to achieving net-zero through reducing its own and by working with communities and organisations to influence behaviours and ambitions on climate change.

Following the declaration of a climate emergency in February of this year, the Council is currently in the process of developing a Climate Change Strategy for the East Riding which will explore opportunities for reducing carbon emissions and examine how we can adapt to climatic changes across the wider East Riding. There are opportunities for residents and businesses to be involved in the development of this strategy, more information on which, can be found below.

The evolving Climate Change Strategy will build on the Council’s successes in environmental management and emission reduction, which have been driven by the authority’s Environmental Policy. This policy ensures that environmental issues are considered in our everyday activities and helps the Council improve its environmental performance, including actions that address climate change mitigation and adaptation.
