Climate & Nature Action
Rodington Parish Council is supported in its aims for a greener Rodington parish by the Rodington Parish Climate & Nature Steering Group which was formed in 2022 by the parish council.
In the spring 2022 edition of Village Voice, we put out a call to all residents in the parish to give us your ideas for how we can make Rodington, Longdon upon Tern and the spaces in between and around them better for the environment and the species and people that use them. This followed the parish council’s declaration of a climate and nature emergency in December 2021 as we acknowledged the emergencies facing the world related to these issues. We were delighted with the range of ideas you provided us with.
These covered a full spectrum of environmental concerns, and a working group of parish residents have grouped them in this vision under 4 themes: Wildlife & Habitats, Energy & Carbon, Waste & Recycling and finally Access & Travel. Whether it’s creating habitat for much-loved species such as hedgehogs, promoting renewable energy, increasing recycling or encouraging active travel, everything represented in this vision comes from you, our community,and it is therefore truly your plan.
Below you can find the terms of reference for our Steering Group and the publication of "A greener Rodington parish" which sets out our vision in Rodington parish.
