Saddleworth Parish Council environmental plan

by Garth Harkness on 20 February, 2020

The Liberal Democrats promised a comprehensive local environmental plan and it is taking shape. The ambitious target is a carbon-neutral council by 2030, and a carbon-neutral Saddleworth by 2035.  

It will be wide-ranging, as everything affects our environment. 

“Take planning”, says leader, Councillor Sam Al-Hamdani. “Building a new home releases 80 tonnes of CO2. Refurbishing an unused home releases around 8 tonnes.”

Meanwhile, Lib Dem Councillor Richard Darlington has been working on water quality in local streams, and has launched a Fairtrade initiative.
