Devon Climate Citizen’s Assembly report has just been published identifying key actions to be incorporated into the Devon Carbon Plan. 

Three topics were identified in the public consultation on the Interim Devon Carbon Plan which was put to the Assembly (of 70 people) for consideration:
1. What should be the role of onshore wind in the Devon Renewable Energy
Strategy?
2. What should be done to encourage less car use within Devon?
3. What would be the best ways of encouraging, or requiring, people to retrofit
their homes, properties or business premises to reduce carbon emissions?

The full report is available to read here: https://www.devonclimateemergency.org.uk/devon-climate-assembly/devon-climate-assembly-report/

The Parish Council has added its signature to Devon County Councils Climate Emergency Declaration.  At the July Parish Council meeting a Climate Emergency policy was agreed.  A Climate Emergency Officer has been appointed to work with Parish Council to look at what we can do to:

a) Improve our environment

b) Reduce C02

c) Get the community ready for climate change

We are planning a workshop for Councillors run by Mid Devon to help us decide on what we can do.
