An East Riding of Yorkshire Council survey is being conducted after draft material for a Climate Change Strategy was developed.
As part of the Strategy, the local authority will outline its vision and ambitions on climate change in the East Riding and highlight opportunities for future action.
As a result of this strategy, the council hopes that residents will think about their own impact on the environment. Taking action against climate change requires collaboration, and every action counts.
Changing weather patterns and rising sea levels are likely to be experienced in the East Riding as a result of changing climate.
Everyone will be affected by climate change, but future generations will have to deal with the consequences for considerably longer, so we all need to make significant changes to how we live and work in order to mitigate it.
The purpose of this survey is to collect input from the public on the draft material for the Climate Change Strategy so that we can create a document that truly reflects residents’ views on climate change. The council encourages residents to read through the summary document here, which contains key draft information about the Climate Change Strategy, before completing the survey.
At the end of the survey, participants will have the opportunity to take part in a climate-friendly prize draw.
The council would like to thank residents in advance for their time and effort in completing this survey and for their support in the development of the Climate Change Strategy.
Take part in the draft Climate Change Strategy survey here.
All responses should be received no later than Sunday, 25 September 2022.
Councillor Chris Matthews, the portfolio holder for environment and climate change at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said:
“The council has declared a climate emergency and committed to developing a Climate Change Strategy. Draft material for our Climate Change Strategy has been prepared and a public consultation is now live.
“I would ask that residents take a few minutes to look at the draft material and let us know their views on climate change and the approach of the strategy.”
While people are urged to view the documents online, a limited number of physical copies of the survey and draft material can be found at the council’s libraries, customer service centres and multi-service centres.
