Climate Change

Our progress - Community

The climate crisis affects everyone and we want to ensure we are doing all we can as a council to educate, encourage, enable and empower residents, community groups and businesses in the borough to make more sustainable choices, reduce emissions, improve biodiversity and increase resilience to the impacts of the changing climate.

  • In November 2023 we ran a community climate action survey to see what action was currently being taken within the borough and determine what else we can do to support residents in taking more climate action. See the results of this survey.
  • We have teamed up with other Hertfordshire local authorities for the Solar Together Scheme which gives you the opportunity to purchase solar panels and/or battery storage at a reduced price.
  • We are working with Better Housing, Better Health, which provides residents with a single point of contact to get impartial expert advice to help improve the energy efficiency of their home, save money and improve comfort.
