Blueprint Coalition: Manifesto Asks

Category: Blueprint Coalition


The Blueprint Coalition is a unique collaboration between local government, environmental and research organisations which first came together in 2019 to champion place based action on climate change and seek more support for local authority delivery. In 2020 we set out five priority asks together with a longer list of detailed policy and funding changes needed from central government.

We are having an impact – the Climate Change Committee has repeatedly highlighted the importance of local authorities to deliver on the UK’s national net zero target but progress is still too slow. In November 2022 the Blueprint Coalition published a progress report which reviewed government action against our original targets and showed that no area merited a green rating.

The Blueprint Coalition is now turning its attention to the forthcoming General Election in 2024 – as the parties start writing their manifestos, we have a key opportunity to influence how the next government treats local government when it comes to delivering on climate.

We’ve set out some overarching asks for all political parties to include in their manifestos in this document.
