Our goals for the future
Climate change is having a major impact on our planet. That is why the Liberal Democrats on Cheltenham Borough Council has led the way locally by declaring a 'Climate Emergency' and set the ambitious goal of becoming a net zero carbon council and borough by 2030.
To help reach this target, we have:
✓ Put £425k into new climate fund to promote a low-carbon way of life.
✓ Developed the ‘Connecting Cheltenham’ plan to improve transport in Cheltenham and encourage more walking, cycling and public transport.
✓ Planted 1200 trees in the past year.
✓ Committed the Borough Council to being as far as possible single-use plastic free.
✓ Installed new recycling bins in public areas.
✓ Introduced new kerbside recycling including cardboard and plastics.
✓ Retained and improved the Swindon Road Recycling Centre.
✓ Continued the roll-out of electric vehicle charging points in CBC car parks.
