Our Environment

Climate emergency, Biodiversity, Marine pollution ... these all effect our community and our everyday lives.

This page will try to keep up to date with the efforts of the parish Climate Group and with Local Council initiatives to tackle these issues.  We also hope to be able to post details of anyone undertaking or organising beach cleans & litter picks - let us know details as the more the merrier!

 

 

The future of transport for the wide South West

Peninsula Transport, the shadow sub-national transport body (STB) for Cornwall, Devon, Plymouth, Somerset and Torbay transport authorities have opened a consultation on its vision and goals for the South West transport network.

Please find attached a bulletin setting out more details on the vision document, which is also available on our website: http://www.peninsulatransport.org.uk/our-vision/.

We invite you to read the vision document and take part in the consultation by filling out our short feedback survey here https://plymouth-consult.objective.co.uk/public/transport/peninsula_transport_1. The deadline for comments is 17 September 2021.

Cornwall Climate Action Network

There are now over 50 climate/environmental action groups, spread across Cornwall, doing fantastic work. They have joined forces as the new Cornwall Climate Action Network, to support each other and work together in response to the Climate Emergency and to reach Cornwall's carbon neutral target.

The Cornwall Climate Action Network would like to understand what Cornwall’s community climate action groups need support with and for groups to learn from each other and help each other.

The Cornwall Climate Action Network is also keen to be guided by what the network groups need and is looking to hold an event initially for networking and shared learning, possibly in May/June. There must be other groups that aren’t in the network and it would be great for them to join the network and for the network to hear from them too. 

Please share Cornwall Climate Action Network’s online questionnaire with your local community climate groups - with a request to kindly complete the questionnaire and hopefully help to grow the network.

Please also direct any climate action groups in your area to the Cornwall Climate Action Network Facebook group.
