The ‘Governance’ section sets out how we manage the strategy to ensure continual improvement – taking advantage of future developments as they arise to improve delivery. Tackling climate change and poor air quality presents significant opportunities…

… mitigate climate change and poor air quality – trees absorb/screen air pollutants and sequester carbon, but also absorb water, slow the flow and reduce the amount of water going to the ground (as their leaves intercept raindrops and water evaporates from the leaves); and their roots bind the soil preventing it from being washed away and allow for better penetration of the water through the soil…

The UK’s average temperature has increased by 0.8°C (comparing 2008-2017 with 1961-1990) - the nine warmest years in the UK have…
