Big opportunity to engage with the council on climate change

From Bude & Stratton Town Council:

We are seeking three members of the public to join our newly founded Climate Change and Environment Committee, which is responsible for coordinating the Council’s response to the climate emergency.

This is a unique opportunity to directly engage with the Town Council to help shape our green policies and initiatives, making a real difference to the community. The first meeting will be held at 6.30 p.m. at the Parkhouse Centre Conference Room on Tuesday 29th October and quarterly thereafter.

The public members will be appointed by the voting Town Councillors of the Committee. The selection will be based on their local knowledge, qualifications, and passion for developing a low carbon-emitting environment that is both good for wildlife and the health and well-being of local residents.

Applicants must agree to abide by the Council’s code of conduct and also fulfil the same eligibility as members of the Town Council (be Over 18  and a British, Commonwealth or European citizen and an elector in the Parish or resided for more than a year in the parish or within three miles of the boundary or occupied any land or premises in it or had their principal place of work here) – if in doubt please ask!
