Hayfield Parish Council Declares Climate Emergency

Hayfield Parish Council has declared a climate emergency. The authority is now one of dozens around the country to adopt such a motion.
Sustainable Hayfield, which lobbied the council to take this action, said: ‘This is unashamedly good news… but it means nothing if not followed by hard work to develop a plan, consistent with the proposal to put to the Council, to limit the council’s own carbon emissions, so that they become a net zero carbon emitting institution.’
This follows our news item last month that Wirksworth Town Council adopted a similar motion and that the newly-created Derbyshire Climate Coalition has created a petition calling on the county council, and all district councils in the area, to declare an emergency and take steps to reduce their carbon emissions.
