Town Council declares a climate emergency

At their September meeting, Dronfield Town Council declared a climate emergency and resolved to take action, to the best of its ability, to help towards achieving a shift to zero carbon emissions by 2050, or sooner if possible.

It resolved to work within its remit to contribute to the targets as set out within government policies and will endeavour to reduce its carbon emissions accordingly.

The Council will also help promote and encourage environmentally friendly initiatives that will contribute to the protection of the local environment.

This follows on from the creation of the Environmental Advisory Committee early this year, whose remit is as follows;

  1. To consider matters of policy related to environmental services provided by the Town Council.
  2. To review possible environmental initiatives that the Town Council could undertake now and in the future.
  3. To recommend to the Budget Committee the budget required to undertake environmental initiatives in any one year.
  4. To make recommendations on the environmental impact of the Town Council's services and activities.

Keep a look out for details of some environmental activities coming soon.
