Sustainable Staverton is a community group set up by Staverton Parish Council following its vote to declare a climate emergency in 2019. The group has changed its name from Staverton Climate Action Group to reflect the wider focus on our entire environment including biodiversity.
Our aim is to share useful information on actions people can take to help protect and restore biodiversity and to reduce carbon footprints. This includes providing support to people claiming the Green Homes Grant which pays up to £5,000 up front for improved insulation or green heating (£10,000 for people on benefits).
Our biodiversity group is actively working to help convert more areas to wildflower meadow. Our transport group is engaged in discussions with Dartington Trust about a possible cycle route to Dartington Hall through North Woods which would offer an off-road cycle route all the way to Totnes.
We are considering separating the Sustainable Staverton pages into a dedicated website to make it easier to navigate content.
We aim to meet every month on zoom. New people always welcome. No formal commitment expected. Contact Simon Oldridge for details.
