On 7th March Norfolk County Council revealed the next stage of Norfolk’s ambitious climate plan which includes actions to support low carbon transport, climate adaptation, and decarbonisation of local business and industry.

The actions cover a range of initiatives, including: 

  • A pilot to develop a sustainable and viable seaweed industry in Norfolk - the project will work with partners in the Netherlands, already implementing sea farms
  • Supporting the development of nature-based solutions to help secure Norfolk's long term water resilience
  • Further walking and cycling improvements in places including King's Lynn, Norwich, Great Yarmouth, and Dereham

In June 2023, Norfolk County Council launched its climate strategy setting out how the council will address its own carbon footprint and its role in supporting Norfolk's transition to become a greener and more resilient county.

The council's ambition and comprehensive approach to climate change has been recognised in the national 2023 Council Climate Action Scorecards, where Norfolk County Council was independently ranked second among the UK county councils for its climate action related initiatives. Read more here.
