Land use

HDCCC will promote sustainable innovations in agriculture and promote net zero in land use by protecting and enhancing key natural assets in such a way that supports sustainable food production whilst fostering resilience and promoting biodiversity.

HDCCC will seek to ensure that the unique local landscapes in Harrogate District are managed in a way which maximises opportunities for natural carbon capture and storage in peatlands, woodlands, and other natural ecosystems.


Encourage the use of shared transport such as trains, buses, and car clubs and recognise the importance of active travel during the ’last mile‘ in successful local transport systems.
