We're reviewing the plan's climate emergency policies

22nd Sep 2020
News PP Climate Emergency Consultation

We want your views on any changes needed to be made to the Plymouth Plan to ensure it is responding to the climate emergency and the action Plymouth needs to take to become carbon neutral by 2030.

On 18 March 2019, Members of Plymouth City Council voted unanimously to declare a 'Climate Emergency', and pledged to make Plymouth carbon neutral by 2030.

On 16 December 2019, the City Council approved Plymouth's first Climate Emergency Action Plan and resolved to 'Undertake an early review of the Plymouth Plan with city partners in order to ensure that the plan responds to the climate emergency and the commitments set out in the Climate Emergency Action Plan'.

Since then a first scoping analysis of the Plymouth Plan has been undertaken and a discussion paper written to highlight what may need to change in the Plymouth Plan in light of the climate emergency.

The scope of this review is limited purely to the climate emergency and the consultation/discussion paper presents a series of questions to act as prompts which need to be considered. They highlight the sections of the Plymouth Plan the scoping exercise has identified may need updating and we would welcome your views.
