Climate Change presents a threat to our way of life.
The Council has worked with and engaged a range of partners, climate experts, community groups and businesses to understand the challenges and opportunities the Climate Emergency presents for our area. Two plans have been produced setting out these challenges and the actions that will be taken to achieve carbon neutrality in the borough. The first is the Climate Emergency Response Plan which focuses on the borough wide response to the climate crisis. The second is the Carbon Management Plan which focuses on the Council's response.

Local Industrial Strategy
Developing ambitious Local Industrial Strategies is central to delivering the National Industrial Strategy’s vision to build an economy fit for the future, with prosperous communities across the United Kingdom, and to drive up productivity.
Cheshire and Warrington LEP (Local Enterprise Partnership) is currently developing its Local Industrial Strategy, underpinned by a robust evidence base (including that which underpinned the Strategic Economic Plan). This strategy will identify the distinctive strengths of the sub-region, whilst highlighting potential issues that may hinder growth aspirations.
