2. Formulating a Plan
Staverton Parish Council declared a climate emergency in April 2019 and has set up an action group to bring people together in the task of reducing the parish’s CO2 emissions to net zero by 2030. Minutes here
Please come along to a meeting on Sunday 17th Nov 3pm-5pm at Staverton Court Room. This will be a social get together to hear about our aims and add your ideas for how to make the parish carbon neutral by 2030. There’ll be tea, cake, wine on offer. Please do come. The more people the better. You might have ideas to offer, or you might just want to listen. This meeting is just the start of the journey.
Over the coming months, we will need to look at each main source of CO2 emissions (heating, transport etc) and work out a plan of action. The action group will organise meetings in the village halls, with guest speakers who can offer advice on how we can achieve our goal.
3. The Parish Plan
For the emerging parish plan, including the energy audit, please click here – Parish Plan
This is largely an empty framework at the moment. Over the coming week, it will be updated to include ideas generated in the first Citizen’s Assembly. Please follow the link above to submit your heating and electricity baseline usage for 2018 so that we can assess over parish energy usage. No individual data shared. To get a good idea of overall energy usage, we need as many people as possible to participate, so please spread the word.
