Roger Smith and I have recently joined the Gloucestershire Cycle Advisory Group & Cycle Forum to give C&CCC a voice in the Council plans.
GCC are now conducting a survey which would benefit from a wider input from any/all of the club if interested. Please see the details below. To be completed by 28th Feb.Gloucestershire County Council wants your views on how transport can be decarbonised -https://haveyoursaygloucestershire.uk.engagementhq.com/...The council, along with all other Gloucestershire authorities, declared a climate emergency in 2019 and the county council adopted a Climate Change Strategy. This strategy saw the council set out the following carbon reduction targets:
The county council’s own operational emissions to be net zero by 2030
Emissions from all sources across the county to be net zero by 2050
The county to work with partners to deliver an 80% reduction in emissions by 2030, relative to 2005.
In 2020, the county council strengthened its targets further, committing to reaching net zero emissions from all sources across the county by 2045.The council, in partnership with UK100, held the Gloucestershire Decarbonising Transport Forum 2022 – Journey to Net Zero in July 2022. The forum’s aim was to bring together key stakeholders and experts to discuss Gloucestershire’s journey to net zero.The council wants to hear from its residents, businesses, and community groups, to understand what they think are the best methods for reducing the emissions and tackling the climate emergency. We want to hear from as many people as possible, so please share this link widely and take the survey - https://haveyoursaygloucestershire.uk.engagementhq.com/...Thank you.Orlagh StonerPrincipal Transport PlannerGloucestershire County Council
