Have your say

They are focusing on 5 different topics to help us achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2030.

  • Carbon reduction – changing the way buildings are built, and how we generate renewable energy.
  • Flood risk – making our communities resilient to the impact of flooding, one of the most direct impacts of climate change that Leeds faces.
  • Green infrastructure – making the most of our green spaces and natural environment, to help improve the health and well-being of our citizens.
  • Place-making – guiding new development to places that offer the best opportunities for active travel and public transport, health & well-being and making the best use of communities’ assets to create ’20-minute neighbourhoods’ where people want to live, work and play.
  • Sustainable infrastructure – integrating low emissions transport and improved digital connectivity, helping reduce journeys by car.

The consultation closes 13 September 2021.
