Have your say before the Climate Emergency Survey closes

Have your say before the Climate Emergency Survey closes

Live in Bolton? Please give your opinions, climate priorities and ideas to reduce emissions and shape plans so Bolton’s a healthier, cleaner and greener place within 10 years.

Here's a direct link to the survey: https://bit.ly/3o8EoBd. It will close on Friday 29 January.

The survey asks you to rank the importance of potential green options - from more electric vehicle charging stations, to extra cycle lanes or more allotments to encourage local food growth. And it encourages you to have your say on a range of measures that organisations in Bolton could implement to save carbon such as improving energy efficiency in social housing, investing in low carbon transport or more recycling and reusing facilities.

There is irrefutable scientific evidence linking climate change to human activity. Bolton, like many other towns and cities, declared a Climate Emergency in August 2019.

Bolton Vision partners (www.boltonvision.org.uk), including Bolton at Home, are committed to making our activities net carbon neutral by 2030.

When we say carbon neutral, we're describing the activity of organisations or people removing as much carbon dioxide from the atmosphere as they put into it. The overall goal of carbon neutrality is to achieve a zero carbon footprint. For example, a business may plant trees in different places around the world to offset the emissions from the electricity the business uses. We need to make these changes to secure the future of our young people who are the adults of tomorrow and will inherit the world with the climates changes we've already made.

Thanks to everyone who’s already taken part and completed the survey.

All responses will be anonymised and no individual will be identified in any report.

Tap4 issues

Rotating GIF version of the text below the image. Links to www.readtap4.online/our-annual-report-2020-2021/cover/.

This quarter, we thought you’d find our 2020/21 Annual Report more useful than a standalone issue of TAP4.

Why? Because it includes more detail on many of the topics we’d otherwise include in the latest TAP4 issue.

  • a breakdown of how we spent EVERY PENNY from each pound of rent you'd paid us, 

  • how building NEW BUILD HOMES benefits you, regardless of whether you live in one, 

  • and the exact number of COMPLAINTS we’ve received, as well as some examples of how we’ve learnt from them (such as missed appointments, fly tipping, and our Antisocial Behaviour Policy).
