Our Environment Strategy
Improving our environmental performance
The environment has a vast scope, ranging from the global ecosystem that supports all life on Earth, to an individual's experience of the immediate area they are in.
The environment is the most precious asset that we possess. We depend on it for the very basics of life such as food and air, as well as those aspects that add quality to our lives, such as open space for recreation and the ability to support activity that generates wealth.
Through our Environment Strategy, we acknowledge our duty to take action to combat global environmental problems, recognising that they will ultimately have an effect at a local level. Locally we have a duty to ensure that the geographical area we control is a healthy, prosperous and pleasant place for all.
This strategy explains how we will deliver environmental performance through different areas of the Council's activities, and its policies and strategies. This strategy will help us to improve our environmental performance by identifying and addressing environmental issues that are not covered by other policies and strategies, and by referencing and monitoring environmental actions that are addressed elsewhere.
