Cllr Sam Corcoran
Joint Chair. Leader, Cheshire East Council.
Sam Corcoran has been the Leader of Cheshire East Council since May 2019.
At the first meeting under his leadership the Council passed a resolution on climate change and has since adopted an Environment Strategy and a detailed Carbon Action Plan committing the Council to be carbon neutral by 2025 (one of the most ambitious targets in the country). The Carbon Action includes innovative proposals around ‘insetting’ carbon emissions by using local tree planting and other measures, as well as plans to assist local businesses to reduce their carbon emissions.
