The leaders of Staffordshire County Council and Lichfield District Council have signed up to be a part of the award-winning Chasewater Green Park Projects.

County Council Leader Cllr Philip Atkins joined his District Council counterpart Cllr David Smith to sign the Chasewater Green Park Projects Memorandum of Understanding.

The signing means the county council will work with partners, including Lichfield District Council, to tackle climate change in practical ways.

Cllr Atkins said:

“We are delighted to be involved in Chasewater Green Park Projects. Energy efficiency and climate change are key issues for everyone, and it is important that we work together to tackle this global challenge.”

Chasewater Green Park Projects includes researching greener ways to energy manage historic buildings, such as Lichfield Cathedral, and looking at ways to create carbon neutral business parks.

Cllr Smith added:

“By officially signing up to Chasewater Green Park Projects, the county council is showing its commitment to tackling climate change at a local level. I am pleased that this partnership initiative is growing every day, and that together we can work on practical solutions to the problems of energy inefficiency and how to reduce our carbon usage.”

Partners involved in Chasewater Green Park Projects also include the University of Birmingham and Advantage West Midlands. A number of private partners including Lichfield Cathedral and Lingfield Developments are also involved and set to come on board.
