The Town Council has made a resolution to join other councils in declaring a climate emergency and made three commitments. 1. When it owns buildings, following devolution, it will look at how to reduce energy and water consumption and consider carefully where it buys its energy, consistent with this declaration. 2. Over the remainder of this administration, as opportunities arise, it will review policies, procedures and contracts to minimise the council’s impact on the local environment and the planet. 3. Engage with residents and others to learn and strive to reduce our carbon footprint, including considering the LGA guide to Councillors.
