Following last night’s hustings, hosted by Climate Friendly Bradford On Avon, and lots of conversations with our fantastic group of candidates, we’re please to offer our policy paper on Nurturing our environment.
Ideal Bradford has a really strong record on climate and eco issues – leading by example with actions, not just fine words; protecting wildlife and habitats, investing in solar panels and electric vehicles to move the Town Council rapidly towards net zero. We’ve enabled it to become a beacon authority which is looked to regionally and nationally on communicating the Emergencies, and creating policy.
We recognise, though, that net zero is not enough. We will continue to set aside a minimum 10% of the budget in tackling the Climate and Ecological Emergencies, and, those emissions that we cannot cut, we’ll identify innovative ways to offset. And we’ll continue to offer £16,000 in community grants to help residents act as well. Because that’s the right thing to do.
