Cornwall has declared a climate emergency and we need change to address it. Our aim to become carbon neutral by 2030, is a massive ask. It will take a combined effort from the Council and everyone in Cornwall. Businesses, residents and visitors will all need to act to achieve this huge step. We will be calling on Westminster to give us powers and funding to help deliver our ambitions. All services across the Council will have a part to play and planning is an important part of the solution. But we must continue to be able to house our residents and provide infrastructure. Giving our children and grandchildren a Cornwall to continue to live and work in.
