Work with the community on energy issues and climate change

    The Council aims to promote and support energy efficiency and the use of renewable energy across the Borough, whether in the home, at work, in school or elsewhere.


    All households and communities can benefit from using energy as efficiently as possible; saving money on bills and looking after the environment at the same time. Working with partners several initiatives have been set up to help people become more energy efficient, or install renewables, or keep warm and healthy. For example:

    Schools, Community Buildings and Churches

    At school, saving energy or installing renewable systems, can save money as well as provide fantastic learning opportunities. We have helped arrange energy audits and energy improvements in several community halls and churches too. Here are some examples of projects in our local schools, community centres and churches:

    Other activities

    We promote energy efficiency and seek to encourage concern regarding climate change in many ways – via theatre productions, talks and presentations,  environmental art initiatives, ‘green roadshows’, at our schools’ Eco-Action Day, through our annual Green Awards and more.
