Climate Change Commission

Climate Change Commission

Our administration are very serious about tackling climate change and has announced ambitious plans to create a Climate Change Commission.

We have unveiled our draft action plan, focusing on five key themes, with a number of projects where the council and others will work to tackle climate change. The Commission will see the council teaming up with world leading experts and industry leaders to make a real difference in our collective responsibility.

General Election 2019

General Election 2019

Since I started in local politics in May ’17 there have been a lot of elections – County Council, General Election, North of Tyne, NCC by-election, Europe, Police & Crime Commissioner and now another General Election.

People are weary but this is the most important one – bringing the brexit paralysis to a speedy conclusion and stopping Corbyn’s damaging brand of politics. The campaign started today in the Hexham constituency.
