A Progress Report Marking The 2nd Anniversary Of Wiltshire Council’s Climate Emergency Motion

Originally published by Trevor Carbin Liberal Democrat

Two years ago a Liberal Democrat proposal to declare a Climate Emergency went through at Wiltshire Council with cross-party support, despite opposition from the Conservative administration, with all the Cabinet members voting against.

This was a great success at the time, and interestingly the Conservatives now claim credit for the Declaration. However the progress to make the council environmentally aware has been slow and painful, with quite a lot of greenwashing by the council's wonderful PR department involved.

Wiltshire Climate Alliance have done an excellent and accurate report on progress, or lack of it, over the last two years. The report is available on this LINK.

The WC administration has retaliated by wheeling out a whinging Cabinet member to attempt to discredit the report. That news release can be found on the WC website.
