Working for Wye - past, present and future

Wye Adapts

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. Foremost of which are the Wye Neighbourhood Plan Review and Design Code projects.

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 developed by the Kent Association of Local Councils to establish the base line for future action plans.

The purchase of the former Methodist church in Wye provides the Parish Council with new opportunities to integrate decarbonisation measures in its Wye Revives project.
