A month remains to have a say on environmental action plans for Islington.

An online consultation into Islington Council’s Vision 2030: Building a Net Zero Carbon Islington by 2030 and its Biodiversity Action Plan is open until July 31.

The plans cover a range of initiatives, such as creating new wildlife habitats, publicising the ecology centre and halving car journeys by encouraging cleaner alternatives.

The consultation was initially scheduled to take place in workshops and public meetings, but was shifted online as the coronavirus pandemic took hold.
