Draft Sustainability and Climate Change Framework Consultation

This consultation is now closed as of 16 August 2016

Sustainable development may sound complicated, but it’s based on a simple idea: that we should meet our needs without creating negative impacts environmentally, socially or economically.  Put simply, it is about living our lives in a way that looks after places, people and pockets, especially those most in need.

Sustainable development is relevant to everyone’s lives and we must all do our bit and take responsibility for our own actions. The Council has produced a Draft Sustainability and Climate Change Framework  to set out a strategic approach for delivering environmental, social and economic benefits in a joined-up way, helping us to meet local, national and international obligations and offering opportunities for efficiency and cost avoidance.


The Council is currently holding a public consultation on the Draft Framework.  Between 5 July and 16 August 2016, members of the public and other stakeholders are invited to read and comment on the proposals in the document.  Paper copies will be available at the libraries, hubs and main Council offices (Southbank Marina HQ, Southbank House and Broomhill Depot).

We would welcome feedback on the style and content of the Framework.
