Burnham-on-Sea and Highbridge Town Council are holding a Climate and Ecological
Community Workshop on Saturday 1st October in King Alfred’s Academy from 2-5pm.
Everyone is welcome to attend. Please register at admin@burnham-highbridgetc.
gov.uk or telephone 01278 788088 by 28th September.
The Community Workshop is in response to the declaration of a Climate and
Ecological Emergency at the Council’s last meeting. Councillors Lesley Millard and
Julie Flurry were tasked with organising this workshop.
The main purpose is to collect all ideas of positive action that the Council can take to
adapt or mitigate Climate Change and to restore wildlife. The Plan will support and
enhance Somerset and Sedgemoor’s Climate and Ecology Plans.
The Council has invited many people who work in this area so that they can use their
knowledge and experience and put it into a local context with all the knowledge and
experience of local residents. All the ideas collected will go forward to form the
foundation of an Action Plan to run until the end of this council in 2027. The Council
will also be asking for volunteers to form a Working Group that will create the Action
Plan and then steer it to the end of its term. Every small step taken by one person will
have an impact when we work together as a community. The Council intends to
create an Action Plan that will improve the lives of all the residents. It will be reviewed
each year and adjusted to ensure the greatest impact for the people of Burnham and
Please come and join us. This is an opportunity for you to be part of an exciting and
dynamic plan that will impact positively on our Town.
