Views wanted on plans to cut emissions
THOUSANDS of tonnes in carbon emissions must be cut as part of a city switch to greener energy.
Residents, businesses and health organisations are to be asked for their views on Stoke-on-Trent City Council's new climate change strategy.
It will shape council policies to help the city meet targets on cutting carbon emissions by 34 per cent before 2020 and 80 per cent by 2050.
City council officials have already revealed ambitions for the city to become energy self sufficient by 2030.

City councillor Andy Platt, cabinet member for green enterprises and clean city, said: "It's not just the city council.
"It's a strategy for the entire city and we need to engage with our partners and our public to make sure they're involved.
"It's very important that it's as broad as possible."
The climate change strategy will cover everything from the council's own carbon emissions to requirements for businesses.
The council has worked with energy firms, which are required to invest in community projects, to have thousands of older homes fitted with heat-saving technology, such as wall insulation.
