Help us create the vision for a green future and tackling climate change in Pontesbury through our

neighbourhood plan at an online workshop on Thursday, 30 July at 6pm.

Pontesbury Parish Council is developing a Neighbourhood Plan to give our community a much bigger

say in how the area develops over the next 15–20 years. The plan needs widespread public engagement

so that it reflects the needs and interests of the community, and ensures that development and change

happen in ways that are genuinely sustainable.

The public is more concerned about climate change than ever before. The UK government has

committed to reduce carbon emissions to nothing by 2050, so within the period of our plan, radical

action needs to be well underway to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and adapt to the impacts of

climate change.

We want your help to see how Pontesbury could contribute. What will Pontesbury be like in 2030?

How have we changed things to make it greener (ideally zero carbon), and more sustainable? How have

we changed the way we generate and use energy, how we travel, the buildings we live and work in, and

where we put new development? How are we protecting and enhancing wildlife and adapting to extreme

weather? And how could these changes make Pontesbury a better, healthier place to live and work?

The 3 hour workshop will be facilitated by the Centre for Sustainable Energy. No specialist knowledge

is needed, just enthusiasm to get involved and openness to think about the future. The outputs will be

policy ideas for inclusion within your neighbourhood plan and ideas for possible community actions

and initiatives to run in parallel with it. Please contact the Parish Clerk on clerk@pontesburypc.org.uk

if you would like to attend. Limited places available.
