East Dunbartonshire Council is looking for feedback from the public on its draft document on Sustainability and Climate Change.

Between July 5 and August 16, anyone interested is being invited to read and comment on the council’s proposals for delivering on environmental, social and economic objectives with a range of partners.

The council needs to set priorities to help it meet certain local, national and international requirements, and make efficiency savings.

While the new document focuses on corporate activities, it offers benefits not just for the council but for East Dunbartonshire’s communities and for the planet as a whole.

Councillor Alan Moir, convener of Development and Regeneration, said: “Partnership working is a fundamental part of our approach to sustainability and climate change, and will be vital to the success of this framework.

“The publication of this draft is an opportunity to re-engage with established partners and to invite the involvement of new ones.

“I hope that communities and stakeholders will welcome the opportunity to contribute to this important agenda.”

The information can be viewed on the council’s website at www.eastdunbarton.gov.uk or paper copies seen in libraries, Community Hubs and the main Council offices at Southbank Marina HQ, Southbank House and Broomhill Depot.

To respond in written to e-mail sustainability@eastdunbarton.gov.uk or on paper to the Sustainability Policy Team, Southbank House, Southbank Business Park, Kirkintilloch G66 1XQ. Input can also be given verbally by phoning 0141 578 8655.

Drop-in sessions will also be held to provide opportunities for in-person discussions.
