Climate Strategy consultation

As a council, we have already made major progress in reducing carbon emissions from our own activities - a massive 55% drop since 2010!

But this only accounts for around 2.5% of Gateshead's total carbon footprint.

So now the Climate Strategy is about working with everybody with a stake in Gateshead, whether you live, work or travel through the borough, to make changes to reduce our carbon emissions.

We want to map out what has already happened across Gateshead and gather your suggestions of what should happen next.

The deadline to tell us this is Monday 28 February 2022. 

We will then create a plan for each ward for your local councillors to champion and provide support in making your suggestions happen.

Consultation map

Use the map to tell us all the good things already happening - and suggest what else you, your neighbours and local businesses can do to help us get to net zero.

Consultation survey

Complete the survey if you're more comfortable just writing your ideas, rather than plotting them on a map.
