Working Group: Environment, Green Belt and the local Landscape


We want to protect and enhance our natural, built and historic environment within the Green Belt, Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and Local Conservation Areas.  At the same time we want to live in a vibrant community, which provides for and supports people of all ages.  


Among other things, the Group will need to consider:

  • Continued protection for the Green Belt, preserving the rural character of the community
  • How the Tyning can be a 'village green' - open to all
  • Supporting local agriculture and the preservation of trees, woods, the open countryside and the farming and wildlife it supports
  • Considering approval for limited development that the community supports, while protecting our environment
  • Using natural resources with care, minimising waste and pollution, and encouraging the use of renewable energy.
ALL RESIDENTS OF FRESHFORD AND LIMPLEY STOKE ARE ENCOURAGED TO PARTICIPATE
