Leeds City Council has launched a consultation on its Local Plan Update. The consultation started on 19th July for a period of 8 weeks and the Conucil are inviting views from anyone who lives, works, studies or has a business in the Leeds district. The consultation is focussed on climate change issues, titled ‘Your Neighbourhood, Your City, Your Planet’. It will focus on ways the Council can shape planning policy to reduce our city’s impact on the environment and help the city achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2030.
Leeds Civic Trust is hosting a Competition of Ideas encouraging citizens to put forward their ideas about how the bus services in Leeds can be improved to become excellent.
The Trust wants people to think beyond the usual constraints that shape Leeds’ bus service today – tight budgets, often expensive and confusing fares, congestion and delays, a lack of integration between services - and suggest how better public transport can improve the quality of their daily life.
Eligible residents will be able to install energy saving technology—including solar panels, cavity wall insulation and, in some areas, external wall insulation—completely free of charge.
Leeds City Council has secured £5.6m from the Government’s Green Homes Grant Local Authority Delivery Scheme, to make nearly 685 of the city’s coldest homes healthier, warmer, and cheaper with energy saving measures. The work supports the council’s efforts both to reduce fuel poverty and tackle climate change and will be carried out in partnership with Better Homes Yorkshire.
A social media campaign has been launched by Leeds Climate Commission working with organisations and individuals across Leeds to promote climate action by local businesses and organisations.
It follows the themes of BBC Radio 5 Live's coverage of local climate action, called Leeds: City on a Mission, and will amplify the issues through a parallel but independent social media presence.
