Steps towards achieving the Doubling Nature vision for Cambridgeshire got closer last week when Cambridgeshire County Council’s new Joint Administration signed a Joint Administration Agreement to run the council, which put the environment, sustainability and the climate crisis as number one out of eight local priorities.
The agreement was signed by the leaders of the Liberal Democrats, Labour and Independent Groups at Shire Hall in Cambridge on Friday 14 May. The document includes a policy framework, protocols for working arrangements between the groups, and a new committee structure.
Natural Cambridgeshire welcomes the prioritisation of the environment and climate change measures, and looks forward to working with the County Council’s new Joint Administration to keep nature at the heart of the agenda.
