For a Greener Peasenhall


Greener Peasenhall is a group of local people who care about our local environment, want to protect it, and prepare it for an uncertain future. We are not a Political group.

A Green Agenda for Peasenhall and surrounding area.

Nature and the Environment:

1.Reduce verge cutting through the village – keep a diverse biosphere

2.Increase tree and hedge planting – personally and as a village

for oxygen/carbon cycle, homes for birds, insects and mammals

3.Encourage residents to leave a wild space in their garden to support birds, insects,mammals

to encourage a diverse biosphere

4.Keep the Gull clear for drainage in the case of excessive rain.

Even if it’s a once in 10years flood – we want the drain to work

5. Save water, reduce consumption, get a water butt

Energy and Housing:

6.Encourage the Insulation of all houses to reduce fuel/carbon use

to use less fuel / carbon, and emit less pollution

to inform future replacement in a sustainable way.

9. Pressure planners – all new homes to be built to higher standards

insulated, passive or as near as, use heat pumps

Waste and Pollution:

8 million people dying of smoke associated health risks / causes of death

11.Discourage the use of plastic bags – even so-called biodegradable bags

less plastic in the sea

12.Discourage the domestic and agricultural use of chemical solutions – pesticides, weedkillers etc.

its killing our wildlife and ruining the soil and water supply

Social:

a bus route might help, especially if electric/hydrogen
