Question weight


Criteria met if climate action (alternatively called sustainability or environment) is listed as one of the combined authority's core priorities or equivalent. It must have its own heading or section and a net-zero target date must be referenced.

The net-zero target date must be an area-wide target, either the UK Government's national target, the devolved nation's target or the combined authority's area-wide net-zero target.


A mid-term Financial Plan is a plan (often covering four years) which sets out their commitment to provide services that meet the needs of people locally and that represent value for money within the overall resources available to the combined authority
We will accept other language for target dates being used such as carbon neutrality.
