Consultation on Wiltshire Council's Draft Climate Strategy

This survey will ask about your views on our draft Climate Strategy objectives for Wiltshire. We will use your feedback to shape our final strategy and delivery plans.  These will be developed after the Climate Strategy is adopted in early 2022.

Thank you for taking the time to complete the survey.  It should take around 10 minutes to complete. You can see the Climate Strategy here

The survey is divided up into the seven themes of the Strategy.  For each theme, we ask you to indicate the extent to which you agree with each objective.

Transport - Climate Strategy page 18

Q1.0Please indicate how strongly you agree or disagree with each objective
 Strongly agree Agree Neither agree nor disagree Disagree Strongly disagree 
 1.1 To achieve mobility and a transport system in Wiltshire that has zero carbon emissions, acknowledging the different solutions for our towns and city versus rural villages. Creating the infrastructure for increased walking, cycling, shared and public transport and use of alternative fuels, including electric vehicle charging points      

 1.2 Achieving high-quality, bus-based, public transport and transport hubs that offer a pleasant and convenient way to get around, and seamless combined journeys      

 1.3 Locating and designing new developments to reduce the need to travel and provide more opportunities for people to travel by zero or low carbon transport modes, for work, leisure and errands      

Homes and built environment - Climate Strategy page 22

Q2.0Please indicate how strongly you agree or disagree with each objective
 Strongly agree Agree Neither agree nor disagree Disagree Strongly disagree 
 2.1 New buildings, including homes, to be net zero carbon and adaptable to climate change as soon as possible (including measures such as water efficiency)      

 2.2 Existing buildings in all sectors to be retrofitted to improve energy efficiency and decrease energy demand through low carbon technology      

 2.3 New and existing buildings to be adapted to climate change for both heating and cooling, and to include measures of benefit to the wider environment where possible (see diagram on page 17  of the strategy for some of the potential measures)      

Natural Environment, food and farming - Climate Strategy page 24

Q3.0Please indicate how strongly you agree or disagree with each objective
