This site has been set up as a collaborative resource following the Climate Change and Neighbourhood Planning Conference at Tremough Campus on 9 March 2019, which focused on the role Neighbourhood Development Plans could play in cutting our carbon emissions. 

If you have anything you would like for us to add to the resources – or anywhere else on the site – please use the contact button (top right of the site) and send the resource along with a description and we will add them ASAP.

The conference aimed to produce some practical action points for groups and councils to take forward and to feed into Cornwall Council’s Climate Emergency action Plan. We also hope to encourage local working groups to develop as a help to progressing local climate change policy development. Take a look at some videos and presentation slides from the day here:

So where do we go from here?

The truth is, there’s no simple answer. But we know that through the ongoing efforts of the numerous people working tirelessly with collaboration and conversation to make a difference, change is coming. We need to speed this change and to do that we need to work together. Please share your thoughts and ideas in the forum and website comments. If you feel there are other pages needed or you have something you would like us to post let us know in the feedback by clicking the link at the top of this page.

Our aim is that this will be a community forum for a Zero Carbon Cornwall.
