Ide Parish Council signs Devon Climate Declaration

At the last meeting it was agreed that Ide Parish Council would sign the Devon Climate Declaration, This is much in line with what they are doing already in the village, but they want to be working together with County, District and other Parishes as much as possible. There is a full link to the declaration hereĀ

As District Councillor it is really nice to see cooperation like this between County and Parishes, and to help with cooperation between the Parishes. In Ide, At the latest meeting of the Climate Emergency Working Group we had visitors from Dunchideock and Hittisleigh, and are in touch with Kenn Parish Council, all interested in doing more locally.

If we are serious about this crisis, we need radical change at every level, from Parishes to a much needed change of national government.
