To find out why we, and many other government bodies/organisations across the UK and indeed the globe have declared a Climate Emergency, we recommend reading the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report HERE
In March 2019, Bradford on Avon Town Council declared a Climate Emergency. The Town Council ‘s Climate Emergency strategy can be viewed HERE
As a Town Council, we will aim to implement positive change in terms of:
- Incorporating the ‘Climate Emergency’ theme and/or considerations into as many in-house projects as possible
- Identifying and implementing ways of reducing the Town Council’s carbon footprint
- Establishing a Climate Emergency Steering Group, comprising of TC councillors/officers and local environmental group representatives to assess all of the practicable ways the Town Council and local community can take positive action. Any TC related actions agreed upon can then be presented to Full Council for implementation.
