Climate change ideas forum

Welcome to East Cambridgeshire District Council's Ideas Forum

East Cambridgeshire District Council has joined more than 200 councils across the UK to declare a climate emergency. The Council has a significant role to play in protecting and improving the environment for future generations. As part of our work to address this, we have created an ideas forum. This is a place for residents to share their ideas with the Council to help us deliver net zero carbon emisions by 2050.

Ideas submitted by 31 January 2020 have been collated and used to form part of our Environment and Climate Change Strategy and Action Plan. The strategy and plan was agreed at the Council's Operational Services Committee in June 2020.

A summary of the ideas submitted and the Council's responses is available below:

There were a lot of great ideas and the Ideas Forum remains open for any new ideas you may have. All those received from 1 February 2020 will be considered for the next iteration of the Council's Environment Plan.
