City Centre Theme - Climate Change

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

The Council declared a ‘Climate Emergency’ in 2019 and it is vital that our response to this shapes the future transformation of the city centre. We will need to rethink how the city centre functions to respond to climate change. We need more sustainable ways of getting into, out of and around the city centre, with less emphasis on motorised vehicles. We also need to repurpose old buildings, increase energy efficiency, identify opportunities for clean decentralised energy, along with bringing nature back into the city. It also means adapting to the effects of climate change, including the increased risk of flooding.

Under this theme we gathered feedback on:

  • Responding to a Climate Emergency - this section discusses how we are responding to climate emergency
  • Our City Our River (OCOR) - flood risk, creation of open areas and regeneration of the river area
  • Energy and Resource Efficiency - exploring the development in the city centre should incorporate energy efficiency measures and create low to zero carbon footprints
  • Renewable Energy - exploring the possibilities of the city centre entirely from renewable and other sustainable fuel sources.
  • Urban Cooling - tackling the issues created by the "Urban Heat Island Effect"
  • Sustainable Transport - ideas around how we can create more sustainable transport patterns
