Southend Council has begun searching for a ‘Head of Climate Change’ to help the town become carbon-neutral by 2030.
It has set an aim that its own activities, as well as its relationships across the borough, ‘promote and deliver a net zero future’.
The council aims to embed sustainability across housing, biodiversity, the seafront, waste and transport.
Councillor Carole Mulroney commented: “In 2019 we declared a climate emergency, committing to the development and delivery of radical policies to meet carbon-neutrality by 2030.
“I am pleased that we are now looking to recruit a ‘Head of Climate Change’ who will lead on the delivery and strategic development of all aspects of climate change across the council and the b borough to achieve a carbon-neutral Southend by 2030 and develop and deliver our low carbon energy and sustainability strategy.”
