Henfield Parish Council’s Climate and Environment Emergency Declaration, adopted in June 2019.

Henfield Parish Council joins the UK Government, and many other parish, town and county councils in declaring a Climate and Environment Emergency. This will mean we always consider the climate and environmental impact of our decisions in the Parish Council’s areas of operation and influence.

The Parish Council will aim to reduce Henfield’s carbon footprint through significant improvements by 2030 and to encourage the whole community to act together on this issue.
