Have your Say on how the region adapts to climate change – consultation ending 30th June

We’re asking people across the region to give their views on a regional strategy that will help ensure that that Devon, Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly can make the changes needed to cope with the worst effects of climate change.

To effectively respond to the climate crises, it’s vital that strategies are put in place to deal with the cause of rising greenhouse gases and its impact on our communities.

The Climate Adaptation Strategy for Devon, Cornwall, and Isles of Scilly will help communities and organisations across the South West better understand the risks their area might face in the future as a result of climate change.

It will also help them to adapt and make the changes needed to cope with the worst effects of climate change, thereby improving their preparedness and resilience and ensuring community safety.

Residents have until Friday 30 June to view the strategy and take part in the consultation.

There’s a free webinar on Tuesday 16 May from 5pm until 6pm to explain the strategy in detail and will include a question and answer session. You can sign up through the Eventbrite website.

If you would like to fill out a paper copy of the consultation, please email environmentalpolicy@devon.gov.uk or call 0345 1551015.
