Rejected petition Carmarthenshire County Council to plant trees and to look at all possible areas for new trees

Despite declaring a climate emergency in 2019, with the hope to be net zero carbon by 2030, the council are slow to act and we need more trees to be planted in the Carmarthenshire area. We are urging Carmarthenshire County Council to look at all possible areas suitable for planting trees, and to plant trees wherever they possibly can to help tackle climate change and improve biodiversity within the Carmarthenshire area. This will also help stop the devastating floods we have seen in past months.

Why was this petition rejected?

It’s about something that the Senedd or Welsh Government is not responsible for.

Petitions to the Senedd cannot concern an issue that is the operational responsibility of a local authority and, therefore, we are not able to accept a petition on this issue.

You could consider contacting Carmarthenshire County Council or your local representatives about this matter instead.

We only reject petitions that don’t meet the petition standards
