Leader of Cambridge City Council, Councillor Ian Nimmo-Smith, has officially signed the Nottingham Declaration on Climate Change. The signing took place at the Mill Road Baptist Church Good Life Festival, which celebrates sustainable living.

Councillor Nimmo-Smith commented:

"We've already taken important steps to address the causes of climate change such as installing solar energy systems in Council houses at

Cameron Road and Kendal Way and incorporating microgeneration into the East Chesterton Community Centre. And there are more important

initiatives in the pipe-line such as including efficiency standards in the 'Cambridge Standard' for Council housing.
