Journey to Net Zero: Reducing the environmental impact of transport in Bath

Introduction and policy background

Improving people's lives is the overriding purpose of Bath & North East Somerset Council (B&NES). It provides the foundation of our Corporate Strategy (The Strategy), which is the ‘golden thread’ that drives everything we do.

The Strategy has two core policy themes:

  • Tackling the climate and ecological emergency
  • Giving people a bigger say

The Strategy is underpinned by three principles, which shape the delivery of the purpose and policies:

  • Preparing for the future
  • Delivering for local residents
  • Focusing on prevention
