Climate & Bio-diversity Crisis

As a result of a demarche by the Bishop’s Castle & Clun Valley XR Goup, Bishop’s Castle
Town Council declared a Climate and Bio-Diversity crisis at their meeting on 18th September,
and have asked the BC Community Partnership to produce a mitigation strategy report.
The report will be delivered in stages, with the target for the initial report being April 2020.
Although all aspects of the Town Plan will need to be reviewed to identify the carbon zero
implications of any recommendations, the bulk of the work will fall to the Sustainability Working
Group [SWG].  The SWG have begun work defining its Terms of Reference and approach,
which will include working closely with other similar organisation, such as the Clun
Climate & Environmental Group.
Anyone interested in helping the SWG in this work should contact Mike Watkins via
