Bollington 2030 Working Group

Climate Emergency

In 2019 Bollington Town Council declared a Climate Emergency so affirming a strong and positive commitment to take action on climate change. This declaration was made in the light of the findings in the International Parliamentary Group for Climate Change Special Report on Global Warming and the bipartisan UK parliamentary national declaration of an Environment and Climate Emergency.

The purpose of the Bollington 2030 Working Group is to produce, implement, monitor and update, as required, a community-led strategic action plan which will permit Bollington to approach carbon neutrality by 2030 and to enhance our community’s resilience to future shocks – the global pandemic has been an example of one such shock and Bollington Town Council recognises that climate action alone is not enough.

The Plan will be delivered through this Working Group and other Bollington Town Council committees (eg the Transport & Travel Working Group), along with a network of contacts from external local groups, businesses, schools and neighbourhoods, whilst also drawing on the expertise of established and trusted organisations in the fields of science and environment.

External parties involved in this initiative include Bollington Business Forum and Transition Bollington. As a resident-led initiative, Transition Bollington have been instrumental in introducing the projects shown below. It is hoped that the Bollington 2030 initiative will broaden engagement with residents and encourage further momentum in strengthening our community for the journey ahead.
