Climate Emergency Planning Guide 2021

Parish and Town Councils can make a big difference for meeting climate targets and reducing emissions, but there is often a lack of guidance on how to do so. Therefore, Frome Town Council has produced the Planning Guide, a document to collate and present the actions being taken to hit our net-zero emissions goals.

If you have any queries, please contact Alex Nettle, our Resilience Communications Officer, at anettle@frometowncouncil.gov.uk or 01373 481958.

Zero Carbon Towns – Making It Happen, June 2018

Cutting emissions in our towns is vital to minimise the risks of climate change, to reduce the impact of air pollution and create energy resilience. But how can we make this happen? And where are we now?

To answer some of these questions Frome Town Council brought together Climate Works, the Centre for Alternative Technology and councillors and policy makers from around the South West and further afield. This was followed by Paul Allen’s ‘Extraordinary Story of Human Beings, Energy and Happiness.’
