STAVERTON PARISH COUNCIL RESOLVED TO ENDORSE THE DEVON CLIMATE EMERGENCY DECLARATION

STAVERTON PARISH COUNCIL RESOLVED TO ENDORSE THE DEVON CLIMATE EMERGENCY DECLARATION AT THEIR MEETING ON 6/10/21

 

THE DECLARATION

  1. This Declaration has been prepared by a consortium of public, private and voluntary organisations collaborating through a Devon Climate Emergency Response Group. It sets out an ambition to tackle climate change that covers all of Devon, including those people who live, work in and visit our county, and those businesses who are based or operate here.
  2. We are aware of the significant implications of climate change for Devon’s communities; it is already affecting our environment, infrastructure, economy and health & wellbeing. If not addressed, the impact on future generations will be profound and the ability to meet the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals will be severely compromised.
  3. We understand that the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has advised that carbon emissions must reduce globally by at least 45% by 2030 from 2010 levels and reach net-zero by 2050 if we are to avoid the worst effects of climate change by keeping warming below 1.5 degrees.
  4. We will lead in the global response to climate change through our collective action, innovation and influence.
  5. Individually, we will review (within 6 months) our plans to reduce our organisation’s carbon emissions to meet or exceed these targets, including ensuring the people we do business with are doing the same. We will publicly report our carbon emissions annually in accessible formats.
  6. In collaboration, we will engage Devon’s residents, businesses and visitors to develop and implement a plan to facilitate the reduction of Devon’s production and consumption emissions to meet IPCC recommendations at the latest. We will openly report progress on its delivery. We know this transformational change will be challenging and will include:
    • Deploying more renewable, decentralised and smart energy systems
    • Retrofitting energy-efficiency measures into our existing buildings
    • Constructing zero-carbon new buildings
    • Travelling less and using improved walking, cycling and public transport infrastructure more often, and using electric and hydrogen vehicles
    • Changing our consumption to use less, re-use more and choose low-carbon options
    • Challenging all economic sectors to review their practices and the values of those they do business with
    • Divesting from fossil fuels
    • Changing our dietary patterns and reducing food waste
    • Changing agricultural practices to reduce emissions associated with farming operations, manage soils sustainably and replenish soil carbon
    • Encouraging carbon storage such as through tree planting, the use of wood in construction and peatland restoration
    • Empowering the people of Devon with the knowledge and skills to act collectively.
  7. Additionally, we will work to understand the near-term and future risks of climate change for Devon to plan for how our infrastructure, public services and communities will have to adapt for a 1.5-degree warmer world.
  8. Local organisations and communities cannot do this alone as the national government plays a key role in many of the policy areas that are vital to reducing emissions and adapting to climate change. We call on the government to prioritise decarbonisation and adaptation within decision making and work with us by using its powers to provide the resources and funding necessary to accelerate the transition to a low-carbon and resilient economy and society.
  9. We challenge every organisation, business, community and individual to do the same

Community Broadband Project

You may be aware that South Hams and West Devon Council have jointly funded a two year Community Broadband Project to help drive broadband provision in areas with poor connectivity.
Broadband provision in South Hams is falling rapidly behind the UK average, partly due to our dispersed rural communities and the challenging topography of the landscape. During the pandemic digital connectivity has been proven to be critical and a lifeline for all. Communities are heavily reliant on digital apps and online services for their healthcare support, businesses fight for their survival through online sales and those who are isolated turn to the internet for a social connection with their communities. We need to ensure our rural communities are not left behind in this digital age.
This project will help residents and businesses to navigate what has become a highly complex system of broadband suppliers and providers, and Government subsidy schemes.
We have now established contacts with the main organisations and broadband industry so are ready to publicise the project within the community. We are inviting people to get in touch if they are looking for better broadband and people willing to be community champions to drive broadband provision within their community areas. We are directing all contact via the new broadband webpage and online contacts form in the first instance so we can build this database.
