Climate Advisory Group

The Parish Council at its meeting in May resolved to declare a climate emergency.

As a result, it was agreed that a Climate Advisory Group be set up to advise the Parish Council on actions the Parish Council need to take to make it carbon neutral at the earliest possible date, how the Parish Council can advise and encourage residents, businesses and visitors to be climate change aware and on the actions they can take to reduce their carbon footprint, on effective and meningful lobbying of local and national government on this important issue and how we can work with local, regional, national and international partners to achieve the '2030' goal.

The Committee reported in July the membership of the Committee. Copies of the Notes from the Committee meetings can be found below. A first report on progress will also be produced by the Committee for the September meeting.

The next meeting of the Matlock Bath Climate Advisory Group will be held in the New Year. The date will be confirmed in due course. All agendas can be found under Meetings and Documentation, Agendas and then click on Climate Advisory Group.
