What are North Devon Council doing?

We published our Carbon, Environment and Biodiversity Plan in 2022,  North Devon Council Carbon Plan (PDF) [777KB]

This plan is only the start. It will be revised and updated as further actions become technically, politically and financially feasible.

Action to date:

  • Changes to our grounds maintenance regime to reduce carbon and encourage nature;
  • Trial of biodiversity net gain approach;
  • We have improved our kerbside recycling collection to include additional materials, including food waste;
  • Working with Carbon Savvy to promote use of personal carbon footprints and support people to make changes that reduce carbon;
  • We have replaced our old Leisure Centre with a more energy efficient building;
  • Working with 361 Energy to promote home energy efficiency advice.
