Who are Climate Action Leicester and Leicestershire? We’re a group of people living in Leicester and Leicestershire who are terrified and inspired by the climate crisis and climate justice and are working together to address these issues.
Something you could do. Leicester City Council is having a special meeting to discuss the next draft of Leicester’s Local Plan, and put it out for consultation. This plan will define how the city develops for the next 15 years, so it really needs to factor climate change in.
It would be good to have people who want to see the council act on Climate Change present to watch the debate, hear what they are saying and show that we care.
We are concerned that the draft should factor in the results and action plan from the Climate Emergency consultation which has just closed.
We’re worried that the council might be pressing ahead to bring in a local plan which does not do this and could lock us into development policies which will make climate change worse for years to come.
The meeting starts at 6pm, Weds 19th Feb, Town Hall. Why not come and watch? This is not a demonstration – just a chance to show the council we feel strongly about this and are watching them.
