I?HAVE?been accused of using exaggerating language in my statement regarding the council's effort to reduce the council's carbon footprint. I must apologise if it
seemed that way.
We are in fact monitoring the council's footprint very closely (the council offices, transport etc) and
exploring every option available to improve.
Our energy surveyor Jake Roos is working very hard to reduce the council's footprint and so far he has made excellent progress.
We have established a climate change working group and we are developing a strategy to ensure that over the next four years and longer we will continue to reduce emissions and increase our efficiency.
As far as councillors are concerned I think it's important that they also work to reduce their emissions!
However the council is moving in a positive direction and I certainly wouldn't say that if I didn't believe that was the case.
