2030 strategy (case study 1)
Stroud District Council's comprehensive strategy and plan, unanimously adopted in March 2021 drives progress on their commitment to a carbon neutral (net zero) and ecologically resilient 2030.
Despite being relatively small, Stroud is ahead of the game, achieving carbon neutral (net zero) operations back in 2015 and taking a progressive approach to community collaboration and strategy governance.
They are ambitiously active, positioning themselves as a pathfinder council for the rural district, pioneering wide reaching services and programmes that provide an avenue for them as influential partners in the climate and ecological crisis.
Natural flood management scheme (case study 2)
Stroud’s Rural Sustainable Drainage Project (Rural SuDs) was initiated by community groups after areas of Stroud were flooded in 2007 and 2012.
