Shrewsbury Town Council has launched a £250,000 fund to press ahead with its carbon-neutral plans.

A climate emergency advisory group will also be set up to help the city become carbon-neutral by 2030 and monitor the performance of initiatives established to accelerate climate goals.

The local authority says it has been working to measure the council's carbon footprint, explore ways to change the council’s fleet to electric alternatives, press forward with greater tree planting and develop better arrangements to procure goods and services with better environmental credentials.
