PACE

Perranzabuloe Action for Climate Emergency (PACE) is currently working to develop a climate action plan which will underpin the activities that we undertake as a Parish to achieve carbon neutrality.

There are lots of different opportunities for reducing our carbon footprint, and our plan will focus on the following topics:

  • Community leadership and participation
  • Reducing consumption and waste
  • Reducing energy use and producing green energy
  • Transforming green spaces, enhancing wild places and restoring nature
  • Darkening the night sky
  • Changing how we move around
  • Producing and eating local food
  • Supporting local business and organisations
  • Building awareness among visitors
  • Building community resilience

This plan is being developed by the PACE working group, comprised of the following volunteers and Councillors:

Whilst working on this plan, PACE and the Parish Council is already working on the following initiatives:

Community leadership and participation

The PACE working group is comprised of members of the community working alongside Parish Councillors.

The children of Perranporth School have been busy drawing pictures related to our environment.  These pictures will help us to raise the awareness about the work of PACE, as well as some of the everyday actions that we can all take as individuals to reduce our carbon footprint and look after our environment.

Transforming green spaces, enhancing wild places and restoring nature

  • Ten trees have been planted in Bolenna Park and Goonhavern Park
  • Hydrangeas have been planted in verges in Goonhavern and Perranporth
  • Wild flowers are being sown in a number of verges throughout Perranporth in order to create a pollinator highway

Changing how we move around

We have a working group set up to get electric vehicle charging provision in our Parish.  We are initially looking to install a small number of chargers this year, with further initiatives planned once the first chargers are installed.  For more information contact jo.pentecost@perranzabuloe-pc.gov.uk
