Nantwich Town Council declare a Climate Emergency

The Town Council has declared a Climate Emergency on behalf of the town.

At its Full Council meeting on Thursday 18th November 2021, Nantwich Town Council resolved to declare a Climate Emergency in order to identify this Town Council’s recognition of the climate and environment crisis facing the world.

The Town Council has now created a Climate Change Working Party (CCWP) consisting of two Town Councillors and key figures from the community. The CCWP is tasked with considering the climate change situation in Nantwich and bring forward recommendations for climate change actions, to reduce the carbon footprint of the Council and the town.

The Town Council will also review its actions within the Strategic Corporate Plan which form the Town Council’s plans to 2023. Having declared the Climate Emergency, the Town Council will ensure all objectives consider Climate Change which will support the town in being more sustainable, environmentally aware and energy efficient.

Cllr Bostock, Mayor of Nantwich and member of the CCWP has said: “I am delighted that councillors voted I favour of declaring a climate emergency.   There are voluntary groups forming in the town keen to work towards a sustainable future, such as Sustainable Nantwich and it is so important that Nantwich Town Council and the community come together so that as a town we can do whatever we can to help solve this world situation which will affect us all.”

The first Climate Change Working Group meeting was held on 23rd March 2021, and now meet monthly.  Agendas and minutes for meetings can be found below.
