The authority says it’s “an opportunity for residents and businesses to have their say on the council's approach to tackling the challenge of climate change, the principles it will be guided by and how it can support our communities on their own net zero journey”.

SCC’s cabinet member for housing and the green environment Cllr Lisa Mitchell (Lab), said: “The council declared a climate emergency in 2019 and we set ourselves the challenge of becoming a net zero organisation by 2030. We’ve also set an ambition for Southampton to be a Zero Carbon City by 2035. We know that achieving this will be a collective task and we want to work with local residents, businesses and organisations on this journey.”
