Think Green and give your view on LCR plans to be net carbon zero by 2040

Residents in Sefton are being asked to help shape the Liverpool City Region Net Zero Action Plan.

Work is already underway here in Sefton to reduce the Council’s own emissions, these include: expanding our walking and cycling networks, implementing agile working practices, installing LED street lights and retrofitting our town halls.

The Liverpool City Region Net Zero Action Plan is being developed across Merseyside and views of residents, businesses and young people in particular, are being sought to shape this plan.

Online surveys and in-person sessions will show the changes we will have to make by 2040, in our homes and neighbourhoods, in our workplaces, and in how we get around. The survey will collect your views on how you feel about potential changes and what support we will need to put in place to make any future changes work for everyone.

 

Cllr Paulette Lappin, Cabinet Member for Compliance, Regulatory and Corporate Services said:

“The Climate Emergency that Sefton Council declared in 2019 is one of the biggest challenges we will face in the coming years.

“Sefton is a coastal borough, it is particularly vulnerable to climate change, but it is also filled with opportunities to take action to protect our planet and improve the health and wellbeing of our communities.

“Climate change will have an effect on all aspects of our lives, and it is vital that everyone takes the opportunity to have their say. I would urge everyone in Sefton to take part in this consultation.

“I hope young people especially feel empowered to shape the decisions that will affect their lives for many more years to come. ”

 

The Liverpool City Region is planning two major surveys and a series of workshops and focus groups. One of the surveys is specifically designed for young people, under 25 years of age, who as the next generation will also be impacted by the changes that will need to be made.

The results will inform what the city region says at the COP26 summit held in Glasgow in November 2021 as well as helping to shape plans in Sefton to tackle the climate emergency.
