Climate emergency declaration

We are proud that we Greens led in Dover District on CLIMATE EMERGENCY DECLARATIONS.

We are proud that, in only 1 month, we put forward 3 competently worded motions capable of getting cross-party support (on Deal Town Council on 25 June, on Walmer Parish Council on 3July, and on Dover Town Council on 18 July).

We’ve recommended the Bristol Green Party’s info pack to our fellow councillors in other parties and also recommended the Guide to Local Authorities on planning for climate change’ published by the Town and Country Planning Association.

We are not part of the majority on any council but we work competently cross party to get URGENT things done.

We will be delighted if / when other parties follow our example, and are hoping that at Dover District Council, the Conservatives in the majority and Labour in opposition can agree a Climate Emergency (2025 or 2030) motion SOON.
