    Climate Change

    The village has been awarded Lottery funding from the Community Fund “TogetherforourPlanet” to explore the feasibility of setting up a scheme for zero carbon energy usage locally. 

    Consultants appointed by the Parish Council are to produce a feasibility study to underpin such a scheme.  The consultants will report to a Council working group, whose notes are published on this site:

    Climate Change Working Group – Notes from Locogen Kick-off Meeting 7.6.22

    The Parish Council is monitoring other local schemes in the area and has noted this report from an action group set up in Settle:

    An exhibition and consultation event for Draughton’s study was held in the village hall on 19 February 2022, featuring a talk and display organised jointly with the local church group.

    Further details will be posted here as and when available.
