Climate Change Working Party
As we emerge from lockdown we will be working hard to focus efforts on our objectives. The crisis has alerted us all, not only to the joys of nature, but to the necessity of protecting the health of the planet. The Allotment and Environment Committee is at the forefront of the Council’s efforts to tackle climate change. Ongoing projects include reducing car use by encouraging walking and cycling, supporting the Bee Friendly Tring campaign and educating the public about waste reductioand energy efficiency. Our thanks go to all of the organisations in the town who have been busy with these projects during the year.
The Council wishes to express its thanks to everyone for their efforts in making Tring such a pleasant place to be. Our situation in the Chiltern Hills makes our town special and interest in the ‘great outdoors’ has increased during the year. Rest assured that the Town Council will do all in its power to retain Tring’s unique character and protect its environment.
