Co Council publishes its climate document

CORK County Council is inviting submissions from the public on the newly-published Draft Strategy for Climate Adaptation 2019-2024. 

The document is a five-year road map which aims to identify key climate change risks for the county. 

The strategy is available for inspection and submissions are welcomed until 5pm on August 12th.

Cork County Council chief executive Tim Lucey said the document assesses the county’s risks and vulnerabilities and is a result of extensive research and engagement with stakeholders. 

‘It will ultimately facilitate the Council’s ongoing commitment to ensuring sustainability and climate resilience in a strategic and proactive manner. Cork County Council encourages members of the public to review the strategy and to submit relevant observations in writing,’ he said.

The report is available for inspection at Council offices in County Hall, Clonakilty, Skibbereen, Inniscarra and Mallow, at all Municipal District offices and libraries, and at www.corkcoco.ie

Submissions can also be made by email to climatereadycork@corkcoco.ie
