The DLH Parish Council's Climate Change Policy - October 2020

Dethick Lea and Holloway Parish Council acknowledges that climate change is one of the largest challenges facing the world and also recognises that it is a key influencing body that can act on this. Therefore, it is essential that this Parish Council helps to proactively facilitate the protection of our local environment, heritage and natural beauty. This needs to be delivered in a way that promotes sustainability, healthy living and also prosperity within the Parish. Through this mutually sustainable approach to living in the Parish, we can help ensure that it is continued to be enjoyed by future generations indefinitely.

In recognising this, and to lead the way with positive action, this Parish Council resolves to:

• Adopt a Climate Change Action Strategy - setting out an action plan and targets to reduce carbon emissions.

• Promote and embed sustainable and energy efficient practices where possible.

• Embed the principle of ‘Reduce, Reuse, Recycle, Rethink’ throughout the Parish.

• Consider ways to protect and enhance our natural environment, stimulate biodiversity and nurture our wildlife and pollinators.

• Organise community action events and work with our partners, businesses, schools, communities, residents and other Councils to promote behavioural change and develop new ideas and co-ordinated responses to climate change and plastic pollution.

• Explore new opportunities and technologies to reduce our carbon footprint.

• Provide for a working group to report and monitor on immediate and longer term actions to be taken
