The following from Cllr Jacqi Hodgson who has seen a very encouraging shift in approach from DCC and SHDC (county and district councils):
I urge all of our local residents to get informed and respond to the opportunities for public views and consultations to these draft plans and proposals as they evolve. You can sign up via these links for the regular updates and newsletters coming out of both DCC: https://www.devonclimateemergency.org.uk and SHDC: https://www.climatechange.southhams.gov.uk/climate-emergency
Last November, Totnes Town Council hosted a week of sessions and workshops to bring together individuals and groups from around the town and adjacent parishes to develop themes and actions for a Community Climate and Ecological Action Plan. The document with outcomes are at the link (and a copy is attached to this email): https://jacqihodgson.org/totnesclimateecologicalemergencyactionplan/ The next steps will be to combine this work with the outcomes of other local action planning days and reveal priorities and pathways of linked actions that can take us individually and collectively towards a resilient, safe and happy future for everyone.
