FOI request

FOI ID number
Net Zero Carbon

Under the Freedom of Information Act (2000) I request the following information.

  1. Has your council passed a motion mandating the council area to go net-zero carbon by a given target date?
  2. If the answer to 1) is ‘yes’, what is the target date?
  3. If the answer to 1) is ‘yes’, has your council produced an action plan of how to get the area to net zero carbon by the target date? Please provide a link to the plan if it is publicly available.

 Please note that this request is in reference to going net-zero carbon across the council’s area, not just the council’s own operations

Our response


On 11 July 2019 Eden District Council declared a Climate Emergency and an Ecological Emergency, with the aim to make Eden District carbon neutral by 2030, taking into account both production and consumption emissions. The minutes from the Council meeting is available on our website.

The action plan is not yet published.
