Strategising the approach towards eight core priorities, including natural environment, energy, waste, transport, Net Zero Council, green economy, flood management, and community engagement, the plans aim to boost environmental development in the county.

Sue Crow, the council's strategic programme manager for economy, sustainability and tourism said: "Both of these plans are incredibly important in supporting the Council in its ambition to enhance the county's environment."

The plans' success will be measured by factors such as the number of trees planted, hectares of biodiversity gain, reduced carbon emissions, new or improved cycleways, active travel enhancements, green economic growth, and protecting flood damage.
