Environment and a Greener Community

One of the things people said they liked most about living in this semi-rural area is the access to wonderful countryside for recreation. The existing, and expanding, network of walking and cycling routes is much appreciated and maintaining this is a high priority. Ensuring that the wooded areas and green spaces are not eroded as the town develops is also a priority, along with opportunities for promoting community growing, and more recycling and reuse initiatives. Together with the ambition for more active travel solutions, these actions will lead to a greener and more sustainable community.
The themes within the Community Action Plan are all interwoven, especially so with the Environment and a Greener Community. Actions from this section, ensuring access to the greenspaces and paths within and around our community will result in higher levels of health and wellbeing and increasing opportunities for active travel may result in less congestion in the town centre, too
