Possible future aims and initiatives
Local Environmental Resource Information worksheets - Briefing Sheets to be created for council surgeries and wider distribution – to give local residents guidance on sustainability and connect them to local sustainable businesses to help residents invest in environmental measures (eg home improvements) both to save money AND the environment.Protect, conserve and enhance local natural environment and biodiversity -
We will work with Dover District Council to minimise cutting of Walmer grassed areas to maximise potential for pollinators and wild flora. We will work to ban use of glyphosate weedkiller and use only wildlife friendly foamstream instead.
Green on Walmer Green - We will explore the possibilities of an Environment focused day of stalls and events on Walmer Green.
Walking and Cycling days - We will work to promote and support car-free days, for example a Walk to Work Day and a Big Pedal Challenge for schools.
Health and fitness - Explore low carbon, low impact health activities for all ages – eg adult outdoor gyms, young children’s play areas and Multi Use Games Areas (MUGAs) for teenagers.
Terracycle scheme - We will lobby Dover District Council to set up a Terracycle scheme for hard to recycle material. https://www.terracycle.com/en-GB
