Report shows environment is improving

Redcar and Cleveland Council together with Redcar and Cleveland Partnership this week published its latest ‘State of the Environment’ report providing the most comprehensive review of the environment ever undertaken in the Borough.

The report sets out evidence illustrating the significant environmental improvements made to the area since the State of the Environment Reports began in 2002.

The Council’s Cabinet Member for Environmental Improvement, Councillor Bob Stanway said: “This is the third report produced in partnership and we’re delighted that the work of the Council and the Redcar and Cleveland Partnership to improve our environment is paying dividends.

”Our response to climate change, receiving Beacon status for our waste management services and continuous improvement in bathing water are just some of the examples.”

A previous report for 2004/5 won praise from the Environment Agency as ‘best practice’ in its field as a way of embedding performance management and the latest report follows this model.

Copies of the report can be accessed through the Council’s website www.redcar-cleveland.gov.uk.
