March councillor leading climate change group
A March councillor is heading a group of rural leaders launching a new network to promote the voice of the countryside in the climate change debate.
Cambridgeshire County Council leader Steve Count, who is also a Fenland District Councillor for March, is heading a cross-party group of 21 councils from every region in England.
A letter published today by the group – the Countryside Climate Network – warns that rural communities are at the frontline of feeling the effects of climate change and that the countryside offers far more than a place to plant millions of trees to offset carbon emissions.
