Climate Change and Environmental Strategy - Consultation

On 13th May 2021, a resolution on Climate Change was considered and approved by the annual residents' meeting (Annual Towns Meeting).   The resolution requested that Braunstone Town Council produce a Climate Change and Environmental Strategy to address the following:

  1. Pledge to make the activities of Braunstone Town Council carbon neutral and embed climate and environmental awareness in all its decision making.
  2. Promote and encourage awareness and action on climate change, environmental protection and recycling by local residents, businesses and community organisations.
  3. Put climate change at the heart of the Town Council's procurement policies including moving to the use of renewable energy sources for its activities and encourage its customers and suppliers to do likewise.
  4. Protect and enhance the town’s Green spaces, promote and encourage tree planting, and seek to increase and enrich biodiversity.

Braunstone Town Council's Policy & Resources Committee on 10th June 2021 received a proposed draft Climate Change and Environmental Strategy for consideration and consultation and resolved to undertake a consultation. 

Draft Climate Change and Environmental Strategy

The consultation draft of Braunstone Town Council’s proposed Climate Change and Environmental Strategy is now available for comment.

Each of the four objectives identified in the Annual Towns Meeting resolution has its own chapter setting out the framework for its delivery.  The final chapters set out action planning, monitoring and review.

The consultation runs for 6 weeks and the deadline for comments is 9.00am on Monday 16th August 2021.  You may make comments in writing to the Executive Officer & Town Clerk, Braunstone Town Council, Braunstone Civic Centre, Kingsway, Braunstone Town, LEICESTER, LE3 2PP or email: This email address is being protected from spambots.
