  • Look at all of its work through a green and fair lens, promoting innovative low carbon solutions that also address problems of fuel poverty and lack of access to affordable housing and good public transport;
  • Encourage low carbon energy generation in the district in suitable settings;
  • Be ambitious in its support of new woodland, which will helps to double nature as well as reach net zero carbon
