Green Community Investment Plan 2021
Extension to Community Investment Plan 2019 – 2023
November 2019 Sevenoaks Town Council (STC) resolved to make the following its
Number 1 Priority:
- To recognise the Government and KCC declarations for aiming for Zero Carbon.
- To integrate this within the vision and throughout the Neighbourhood Development Plan (NDP) and within the Town Council’s general operation.
Unfortunately, the COVID-19 pandemic had disrupted some of the STC original plans from 2019. However, STC has used the time to refocus its draft Neighbourhood Development Plan on climate and green issues, identifying policies which would contribute to a more sustainable town.
At a meeting in November 2021, Councillors met to review STC’s original 2019 climate change initiatives and considered additional and new proposals. It was agreed that STC should communicate more to the public about the practical local initiatives it was already undertaking and its plans for the future and that STC should take a local leadership role, providing information about simple measures that can be taken in helping the local community to Reduce, Reuse and Recycle to help the planet.
