Climate change in Yiewsley

Greta Thunberg, David Attenborough, and Dr Asher de Vos have been trying to tell anyone who will listen about Climate Change.

Hillingdon Council passed a Climate Emergency motion, in January 2020, after a petition from a local resident.

The motion commits the Council to being carbon neutral by 2030.

News update on our swimming pool campaign - Hillingdon Council has put building a new leisure complex in West Drayton in the Council’s budget for 2021/22.

Residents have been promised a new theatre and a museum of Hillingdon by the Council. Neither of these materialised.

We will wait and see whether we get the new leisure complex. The history of the swimming pool campaign can be seen in our Archive.

The UK will host Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow in November 2021. This brings countries from around the world together to discuss how to cut global CO2 emissions.

You can see the COP26 Conference website here.

Whether Boris Johnson, Prime Minister and MP for Uxbridge and South Ruislip, has the courage to set ambitious targets for the UK at the conference will depend on whether residents make Hillingdon Councils’ Climate Action Plan the best in the country or just average.

We sent the Council ideas about how the consultation could take place, to ensure that all of Hillingdon’s diverse voices are heard. Please see our suggestions here.
