Dalbury Lees Parish Council

Climate Change Statement and Strategy

This Council acknowledges that climate change is one of the largest challenges facing the world and also recognises that it is an influencing body that can act on this locally. Therefore it is essential that The Council helps to proactively facilitate the protection of our local environment, heritage and natural beauty. This needs to be delivered in a way that promotes sustainability, healthy living and also prosperity within the parish.

Through this mutually sustainable approach to living in the parish, we can help ensure that it can continued to be enjoyed by future generations indefinitely.

In recognising this, and to lead the way with positive action, this Council resolves to:

• Adopt a Climate Change Action Strategy – by planning relevant actions and including Climate Change as an agenda item at each Parish Council meeting to ensure that it is kept under close review.

• Embed the principle of 'Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Rethink' within parish council activity.

• Consider ways to protect and enhance our natural environment, stimulate biodiversity and nurture our wildlife and pollinators.

• Organise community action events and work with our village hall trust, residents and the wider Council structure to promote behavioural change and develop new ideas and co-ordinated responses to climate change.
