Conservative Councils lobbying national Govt

Hi. Hampshire County Council (firmly Conservative has said it needs Government action to enable it to meet its climate emergency target. I want to encourage sympathetic Cllrs (also Conservative) to build a strong Conservative local Gov voice together. Does anyone know of any other Conservative Council(s) that are or could link up? (I convene Hampshire Climate Action Network, a network for local climate activists to liaise across the county.) Thanks!

The Conservative Environment Network is probably a good place to start. Lots of Conservative Councils had a lobbying clause in their declarations, but you would have to go through them all to find them. Labour & Lib Dem Councils aren’t any better co-ordinated afaik, it’s something we need to get much better at this year.

Thanks! If anyone happens to know of a Conservative Council doing this, I’d be glad to hear.
