Have your say on our draft Climate Adaptation Plan

We are committed to playing our part in limiting the effects of climate change. Both extreme weather events and long-term gradual climate change could have wide ranging implications in the district. To help us manage any potential impacts we are producing South Gloucestershire’s Climate Change Strategy.

The first part of the South Gloucestershire Climate Change Strategy (the Low Carbon Plan) was adopted in April 2013 and sets out how we are working with our partners to play our part in reducing dangerous emissions. We are now seeking your views on a draft of the second part of the Climate Change Strategy – the Climate Adaptation Plan.

This document aims to provide a guide for managing the impacts of climate change to make sure that South Gloucestershire remains a safe, secure and healthy place to live. It will help us to understand the risks associated with a changing climate and to take action to reduce or manage the adverse impacts and increase local resilience.

We are particularly interested in hearing your views on the following:

Have we highlighted all of the key issues and risks?

Are there any other relevant activities in progress or planned that should be included in the Plan?

Are there any other actions you think need to be considered?

The consultation is open now and ends on 31 July.

An open consultation on the Climate Adaptation Plan will also be held at the South Gloucestershire Environment Forum meeting on Wednesday 9 July between 7pm and 9pm at the Park Centre, High Street, Kingswood, BS15 4AR.
