Scope of the inquiry
Surrey’s Greener Future Task Group will focus on Surrey County Council’s recent declaration of a climate emergency and the actions the council needs to take to achieve net zero carbon emissions as soon as possible. The task group will also consider the role residents need to play in their local community and the wider impact of other public sector organisations and the private sector on the county’s environment to develop a system-wide position.
We want to hear from Surrey residents, businesses and partners so we can write a call for action. The task group will be reporting its findings to Council in December 2019 and will base its recommendations on the evidence you provide so this is an excellent opportunity to influence the council’s future strategy.
The task group welcomes written evidence on some, or all, of the points below by Sunday 15 September in no more than 2,000 words. You can use links to other sources to support your submission. You can submit evidence using this web page, by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or in writing to Democratic Services, County Hall, Room 122, Kingston upon Thames, KT1 2DN using the form at the foot of this page.
Your information including your views, will be collected and used to identify the actions needed to be taken by Surrey County Council to achieve net zero carbon emissions. The Task Group will also use your views to consider the role of residents and the impact of public sector and private sector organisations on the county environment, as well as for research and statistical analysis. It will be shared with the members of the Surrey’s Greener Future Task Group as well as disclosed (including your name and contact details ) and published on Surrey Says https://www.surreysays.co.uk.
