Coronavirus (COVID-19): updates and advice, including help if you are struggling financially

There is clear scientific evidence to show that climate change is happening and is due to human activity. Whilst this is a huge global challenge, many solutions are local.

Complete the consultation on Dorset Council’s Climate Emergency Strategy and Action Plan

Your feedback will inform our plans and prioritise our climate change work alongside all our other services we are legally obliged to provide. The consultation runs from Thursday 29 October until Sunday 6 December.

Dorset has a role to play in helping tackle this growing danger while we still have time to make a difference.

In response to this threat, at our very first Full Council meeting back in May, we took the bold step to declare a Climate and Ecological Emergency.

In July 2020, a draft Climate and Ecological Emergency Strategy was produced. This presents eight key areas for action to ensure that the Council changes the way it delivers services. We want to ensure we as an organisation are carbon-neutral by 2040. We want to support the wider county to be carbon neutral by 2050.

Find out more about Climate Change and what the government’s plans are to tackle it.

Consultation  2020

We are committed to transparent democratic values. Therefore, it is vital you have the opportunity to feedback on our draft plans before we commit to action.

Due to the sheer scale of the proposed strategy and actions, including projected levels of funding required, we want to hear your views on what should be prioritised.  Please take a few minutes to respond to the consultation.
