A New Declaration for Councils on Climate Change

October 2011: The Local Government (LG) Group has recently consulted with councils on establishing a revised version of the ‘Nottingham Declaration on  Climate Change’. The original declaration was set out in 2000, with local authority signatories pledging action to reduce carbon emissions.  As part of the recently signed Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) between the Local Government Group and DECC,  it has been agreed that a new Nottingham Declaration Board, New Declaration document and accompanying Action Plan will be established to enable councils to reduce carbon emissions at the local level. There were over 300 signatories to the original declaration across the country including most London councils.
