Building low carbon infrastructure in Surrey

Supporting infrastructure can make it possible for residents and businesses to make low carbon travel and lifestyle choices and avoid the cost of expensive retrofit.

We will continue to invest in more cycling and walking routes across the county to help people to choose low carbon travel and to rely less on their cars. We'll also implement the other proposals outlined in our Surrey Transport Plan which include providing more charging points and parking for electric vehicles, more bus services, charging for transport use and introducing car clubs, as well as improving internet connections for home-working and redesigning neighbourhoods that enable easier access to local services.

We'll also work with planning authorities and developers to make sure sustainability targets are included in all our major regeneration projects. To ensure that everything we build is fit for a low carbon future, planning authorities and developers can support net-zero developments which are adapted to the impacts of climate change and achieve biodiversity net-gain.
