Climate Strategy has been launched at Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse Museum

Norfolk County Council, 7 June 2023 00:00

Norfolk County Council's Climate Strategy, adopted by Cabinet in May, was launched at Gressenhall Farm and Workhouse Museum this week with special guest Kate Strong, world record holder and endurance cyclist.

The Climate Strategy, which was adopted by Norfolk County Council's Cabinet last month, sets out how the council will work not only to reduce its own carbon emissions, but to drive down emissions across the county, protect the unique environment of Norfolk, and to seize the opportunities the move to a green economy represents, securing investment and growth for Norfolk.

Key proposals include:

  • Supporting active and sustainable transport, including further bus improvements and electric vehicle charging
  • Providing space for nature and developing a nature recovery strategy
  • Retrofitting council buildings to take out gas and oil heating and improve insulation - and encouraging businesses, residents and other organisations to do the same
  • Reducing emissions from the council's companies, such as Norse
  • Developing the green economy, with support for green skills, sustainable tourism and businesses
  • The development of a nature recovery strategy to protect our natural assets and encourage greater biodiversity
  • Working with the Tyndall Centre for climate change research at the University of East Anglia, to understand climate change impacts and how Norfolk might adapt to them
  • Close collaboration between public sector, business, community and voluntary groups
