Climate Emergency declaration
On the 9th September Long Ashton Parish Council passed the following resolution:
This council recognises the climate emergency that exists, and pledges to do whatever is in its power to make the civil parish of Long Ashton carbon neutral by 2030. To facilitate this, we will:
- Initiate and support a forum where Councillors and stakeholders can agree changes to the Council and community that help us to meet this goal.
- Place the "Climate Emergency" on the agenda of future council meetings, so that we can regularly consider all recommendations from the forum and review our progress.
- Actively support North Somerset Council's climate change strategy and work with neighbouring Parish Councils and government departments where appropriate.
Biodiversity Working Group
More about the Biodiversity Working Group
Biodiversity refers to the variety of life on earth. It is widely recognised that we need to be more connected to the natural world for our own survival. Biodiversity is also important in maintaining the resilience of the services nature provides to us, such as carbon sequestration. Long Ashton Parish Council recognises this value and is cognisant of its legal duty to conserve and increase biodiversity and therefore commits to conserve and increase biodiversity throughout the parish of Long Ashton and Leigh Woods.
