Can Dorset Become ‘England’s Greenest County’?

Is Dorset Council’s goal of becoming ‘England’s greenest county’ realistic?

A member of the public has challenged Cllr Ray Bryan’s statement with a written question submitted at last week’s council cabinet meeting. Somerset and Wiltshire Councils want to be carbon neutral by 2030.

Cllr Bryan responds, explaining why Dorset Council is pursuing a 2040 timeline and won’t sign up to the UK 100 pledge, unlike neighbouring authorities.
