  • We will take urgent action to get to carbon neutrality by 2030, in joint plans with local councils. 

  • We will ensure public buildings are efficient and where possible generate their own electricity.

  • We will invest in better and more usable cycle provision, public transport and electric vehicle charging points.

  • We will curb investment in fossil fuels.

  • We will bolster local flood prevention and hold drainage and sewage bodies to account.


Paul Follows, Lib Dem candidate for Godalming South, Milford & Witley, said:

"Surrey County Council needs to do much better in defending the climate emergency that they themselves have declared.

"The recent UK Oil & Gas (UKOG) application to drill for oil and gas at Dunsfold is just one recent example. Although defeated, things like that should never make it to a planning committee, and should be more robustly opposed by council officers if they do.

"We should not be encouraging anything other than sustainable energy generation from renewable resources, and the council should be doing more to promote more sustainable travel as well as getting their own house in order."
