GREEN-minded residents can have another say on Warwick district’s net zero plan.
People are invited to share their views on the proposed modifications made to Warwick District Council’s Net Zero Carbon Development Plan Document following public hearings and the submission of the document to the Government’s Planning Inspectorate.
The latest consultation which runs until July 17, is one of the final stages that need to be completed in order for the new policy to be adopted.
Successful implementation will impose rigorous standards on new developments to help meet the WDC’s ambitious Climate Emergency target of becoming net zero carbon or as close as possible by 2030, and the government’s target of meeting net zero carbon nationally by 2050.
WDC Climate Change spokesoerson Coun James Kennedy said: “This planning policy document is a vital part of our plans to tackle climate change in the district. Without this policy intervention we will continue to see new homes being built that are adding to our carbon emissions and will require retrofitting at some time in the future.
“The aim of this consultation is to enable interested parties to comment on the proposed main modifications to ensure that they comply to legal requirements and are considered sound.”
Responses to the Net Zero Carbon Proposed Main Modifications Consultation must be received by midnight on Monday July 17 and can be submitted through the council’s online consultation system, via email to [email protected], or by post to FAO Planning Policy, NZC-Main Modifications Consultation, Riverside House, Milverton Hill, Leamington, CV32 5HZ.
