Climate Change

Bisley-with-Lypiatt Parish Council has declared a climate emergency. The likely climate change effect will be an integral consideration in all decisions and actions we take. The Council will make all practicable efforts to reduce carbon emissions from its own activities to net zero as soon as practically possible. In addition, we will do all we can to encourage and help residents and businesses in the parish to work towards the goal of carbon zero by 2030, in accordance with SDC’s 2030 strategy. Climate Change Action Plan Mb 13.01.2021

Bisley Eastcombe & Oakridge Climate Action Network (BisCAN) is a community of groups and individuals in the Parish of Bisley-with-Lypiatt, which aims to mitigate the impact of climate change by reducing our local carbon footprint, and to aid nature recovery in our Parish. We share information, collect data, support each other in our efforts, and together develop projects to further these goals. We are part of the Transition Stroud CAN Forum and collaborate with other CANs. We hope to encourage the residents of our communities to lead lives that are healthy and happy while putting nature first. We are open to all residents of the Parish, and will be transparent and democratic in all we do.
