Environment Working Group

As of 4th April 2023 the Council resolved to close the Environmental Working Group as the council now have environmental concerns as a core focus in all their decision making.

In June 2022 the Parish Council approved a proposal to form an Environment Working Group to consider what actions could be taken in the Parish to support environmental sustainability.

The group will generate ideas, gather information and then put forward proposals to the Full Council.
