Launched - the final Devon Carbon Plan
The final version of the Devon Carbon Plan went live at 9am today (Tuesday 27th September) on the Devon Climate Emergency website. The Devon Carbon Plan will act on the climate crisis by setting out actions and goals for Devon to reach net-zero by 2050 (at the latest) and belongs to us all, so everyone must play their part to make the Plan work, including local policy makers, organisations, communities, and individuals.
Councillor Colin Slade, Cabinet Member for the Environment and Climate Change at Mid Devon District Council, said:
“Mid Devon District Council has been a signatory to the Devon Carbon Plan since 2019 and we welcome this final version which has grown from a county-wide community consultation process. Let’s encourage everyone in Mid Devon to engage with this local plan for climate resilience and action.”
