Bracknell Forest Council made a commitment to tackle the causes and effects of climate change. This was one by adopting the Nottingham Declaration on Climate Change. They refreshed their commitment to action on climate change by becoming a signatory to Climate Local. The Local Government Association’s successor to the Nottingham Declaration on Climate Change.
Bracknell Forest Council was selected, amidst strong competition, to take part in this ambitious programme. Bracknell Forest Council partnered with the Carbon Trust on this programme in order to realise vast carbon and cost savings. This Carbon Management Plan commits the council to a target of reducing CO2 by 25% by 2012 and underpins potential financial savings to the council of around £4.4 million.
Managed by Bracknell Forest Council, the Bracknell Leisure Centre combines a wide range of sports and leisure facilities for the local community and includes three swimming pools, gyms, indoor sports courts, a café and function rooms.
