Lewes District Council has laid out plans to reach carbon neutrality after becoming the latest council to declare a climate emergency.
At a full council meeting on Monday (July 15), councillors unanimously backed a motion for the authority to declare a climate emergency and become carbon neutral by 2030.
The motion, put forward by the council’s freshly-appointed cabinet member for sustainability Cllr Matthew Bird, laid out seven actions the council should take to achieve these goals.
