North Norfolk District Council is excited to announce the creation of two new posts, which will be instrumental in achieving our commitment to tackling climate change and improving the local environment.
The new Environmental Policy Officer will develop the Council’s Environmental Charter and Action Plan, whilst the Climate Change Projects Officer will work with local communities to implement key initiatives that help achieve our aim of being a carbon neutral council by 2030.
The Council has already reduced its carbon footprint by the installation of 390 solar panels on the roof of the Council offices at Cromer, progressing the installation of electric vehicle charging points in two of its car parks, with more to follow, switching to a green energy provider and is continuing in this new planting season with its ambitious plan to plant 110,000 trees by May 2023, which, once mature, are anticipated to offset some 264 tonnes of CO2 per year.
Cllr Nigel Lloyd, NNDC’s Portfolio Holder for Environment, said: “These new posts will allow the Council to make a step change in its own activities to address the climate and environmental challenges we face and to help and inspire local residents and businesses to take action that will benefit us all.”
