Southwell town councillors declare a climate emergency which aims to make the town zero-carbon by 2030




A controversial climate emergency was declared by town councillors, with the aim of making Southwell a zero-carbon town by 2030.

Six councillors voted to adopt the amended environmental policy, while six abstained, giving council chairman Mrs Lyn Harris the final vote ­— and she voted in favour.
