On Tuesday this week, Surrey County Council’s Cabinet endorsed Surrey’s Climate Change Strategy.
I was part of the members scrutiny group that worked on the report. I believe it’s a very positive step forward, although I had hoped the strategy would include more specific targets, for example, on modal shift to less polluting transport modes.
The shared ambition of Surrey’s 12 local authorities is that our residents live in clean, safe and green communities, where people and organisations embrace their environmental responsibilities.
