Parish Council Sustainability Statement

Wild Flower areas off the Shurdington Road

No Mow

In 2024, the Parish Council Climate and Environment Working Group (CEWG) plans to launch Bee Square, a Parish-wide project to encourage everyone to leave a square metre of garden uncut to encourage wildflowers and, in turn, pollinators that rely on these flowers. In anticipation of this project, the Parish Council has planted up two sites along the Shurdington Road with wildflowers to showcase this important initiative. If you are interested in joining Bee Square in 2024, simply subscribe to our newsletter.

Working with Cheltenham Borough Council

The Parish Council supports the Borough Council's commitment for Cheltenham to be net zero carbon by 2030. Our Environment Working Group (list of members) has three areas of focus: community energy, sustainable transport, and treeplanting/biodiversity. There are some initiatives underway but we want to hear your ideas.
