Speaker Evening with guest speaker

Harrogate Borough Council Cllr Phil Ireland cabinet member for the Environment.

Phil will be sharing with us with the latest from the council’s Carbon Reduction Strategy, which has been updated following the recent widespread public consultation

What does the outcome mean to the immediate future of the district?

For those who don't know, HBC's stated aim is to have a net zero-carbon economy by 2038.

And furthermore, as an organisation the council's operations will be clean and efficient, and will play a positive role enabling the wider district to achieve net-zero emissions.

HBC's carbon reduction strategy complements its corporate ambition for the district to build on its heritage and be a progressive and vibrant place to live, work and visit.

However, all sorts of changes are afoot!

Not least the fact that Harrogate Borough Council will cease to exist in May 2023.

  • So how well is it the strategy going now and how well will it be going then?
  • And how will the district's environment be affected by Local Government Reorganisation in 2023?
  • And how will transition to a single unitary authority affect zero carbon performance rates overall?

Join us at 7.30pm in COGS (Centre on Gracious Street) on Feb 22nd to find out more.
