Patchway Town Council Goes Paperless
Patchway Town Council has voted to go paperless at its Full Council, Finance Committee and Parks, Open Spaces, Planning and Transport Committee meetings. The move received unanimous support and Councillors will use digital devices for all future meetings.
Patchway Town Council in partnership with South Gloucestershire Council also recognises the importance of taking steps to address the ecological crisis our world is facing and the Local Nature Action Plan was drawn up earlier this year in order for us to take the necessary steps to stop the decline of biodiversity: https://www.patchwaytowncouncil.gov.uk/nature
The Town Council is currently discussing options for a community orchard and community garden in the town to improve the biodiversity of our open spaces, as well as provide our community with access to community growing opportunities.
The Council installed 10 'Bee Hotels' throughout Patchway in May at The Tumps, the BMX Track, Scott Park and Pretoria Road Allotments. And squirrel feeding platforms have been installed at high levels in Scott Park.
The Council is committed to supporting the environment, biodiversity and the use of the earth’s precious resources.
