In 2019 Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council declared a climate emergency, which included a commitment to help the borough become net zero carbon by 2030.

This is a challenging target, and we need the combined effort of the council and residents, including local community and interest groups, as well as businesses, parish and town councils and others to help make this big step-change to ensure that our children and grandchildren have a borough they can live, work and thrive in.

It’s believed that community groups are particularly well placed to understand the needs of residents and effect change in their local areas and networks and the BDBC Council are keen to offer support and work together with you to help protect our borough for future generations.

To do this, the BDBC Council have created a quick questionnaire for you to tell them about what you’ve done so far as well as plans you may have for the future, whether climate change is an issue you’ve considered or not. There are 15 questions and the survey should take around five minutes to complete.

Please click here to complete the climate emergency questionnaire. The deadline for responding is midday on Wednesday 17 August.

If you have any questions please contact the council’s climate change team at
