This a catch-all project to integrate climate emergency measures, decarbonisation and community resilience across the Parish Council's general work areas, and its projects listed below. Notably the Wye Neighbourhood Plan Review. For example, the Parish Council is now free from the long term electricity contracts that it inherited from Ashford Borough Council. When these expired the Parish Council switched to a 100% renewable energy supplier. Going forward, purchases and projects will aim to minimise carbon emissions.
Having picked off quick wins opportunistically, the next step is to adopt a structured approach. This involves collecting carbon footprint data and running it through a new environmental calculator to establish the base line for future action plans.
