Welcome to the Environment Group
More and more of us are asking how we can make a difference to preserve and improve our community.
On these pages you will find information on issues such as Sustainable living, Transport policy, Local and sustainable food, Fair Trade, Natural Habitats and Wildlife, Waste & Recycling.
Measure your own Carbon Footprint
Recent surveys have shown that residents put the environment at the top of their priority list. On 13 March 2007, David Miliband, Secretary of State for the Environment, announced the first ever climate change bill. At its centre is the aim to cut UK carbon emissions by 60% by 2050.
The newly launched Carbon Footprinting tool (go to Environment Group>Carbon Footprint) will help our Parish Council to work with our local communities more closely to help them develop appropriate ways of addressing local energy needs and deliver climate change and sustainable energy objectives.
