Basingstoke and Deane Borough Council have declared a Climate Change Emergency.
That makes the 18th July 2019 a special day indeed.
The motion was presented by Basingstoke Labour but had the support of all parties who worked together to produce one motion.
The motion was passed unanimously and there were some great speeches.
This is a very important issue and we will now need to make sure we make sure the Council delivers and help secure the future of our planet.
Listen to the speeches given by our brilliant Labour Councillors, Chloe Ashfield and Andrew McCormick.
