Planning for Climate Change
Addressing the challenges we face from climate change is a key
priority for planning. Effective spatial planning can help provide
a response to the challenges faced by providing a framework
for sustainable growth.
Worcestershire County Council works with partner organisations
to explore opportunities to adapt and mitigate for the effects of
predicted future climate change.
