Conference: Climate Change and Neighbourhood Planning

on Saturday 9th March, 10am-5.30pm, at

The Exchange, Tremough Campus, Penryn TR10 9AH

Many local councils are working on Neighbourhood Development Plans (NDPs); others have not started or have plans already adopted. Cornwall Council has declared a climate emergency, and a recent scientific report requires us all to do our part into halving our climate changing emissions by 2030. If we do this, the future in Cornwall could be much brighter for our children and grandchildren.

Parish and Town Councils have always played a crucial role in helping their local populations to adapt in changing times. Now is the time for developing and working within NDPs in ambitious ways which help increase local renewable energy and provide more local resilience in the face of external threats. Come to the conference to find out how to do this and what the Government and Cornwall Council suggest we do in NDP development to help in climate change action.
