    Teignbridge District Council has unveiled ambitious proposals to address its own and residents' carbon footprint. The Council's Climate Change Officer appointed early in 2020 has made rapid progress on several projects, to ensure progress to meet our District's 2025 net zero target.

    Proposals for the Council's own buildings include installation of low carbon air-source heat pumps, solar PV, energy storage, building energy management system and building fabric upgrades, including Broadmeadow, Newton Abbot Leisure Centres and Forde House. It is hoped that government grants will fund the majority of these improvements.

    A proposal to allocate £0.5 million to a district-wide post Covid recovery programme, put forward by Liberal Democrat councillors, was approved by South Hams District Council at last week's meeting [11th Feb].

    The Liberal Democrats have been calling for £500,000 - currently sitting in reserves - to be used to help local businesses and the community recover from the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic.

    The release of the government's white paper setting out legislative proposals that will result in profound changes to the provision of health care is only a small step in the right direction since it has failed to lay out a substantial plan for social care, despite consistent calls for reform.

    Devon Liberal Democrats are calling for legislation on the funding of social care as a matter of urgency, as well as increasing the role of public health in preventing illness.
