Cleaner and greener

ten pledges, five years, one community

By 2016 the Canterbury district will be a cleaner, greener place to live and visit.

In order to meet this aim, we would expect to see progress on the following measures during the next five years:

  • A reduction in our energy usage and carbon emissions as an organisation
  • An increase in the proportion of people agreeing that the council “is working to make the area cleaner and greener”
  • An increase in the proportion of people saying that they are satisfied with the environmental services provided by the council (such as recycling and street cleanliness)
  • An increase in the proportion of local sites where conservation management has been or is being implemented.

A new Local Plan for the district

A new Local Plan for the district has progressed significantly over 2012. The plan aims to create the right conditions to encourage new investment that will diversify and strengthen the local economy. The council will be formally consulting on this important plan in the Spring of 2013
