Net Zero Hollesley: An Action Plan

The Suffolk Climate Change Partnership is looking at ways it can support communities in Suffolk to become cleaner, greener and healthier places to live, work and study.

Following a survey undertaken in June 2020, Hollesley was selected as a pilot case study area to develop a route map for reducing a rural village’s carbon footprint, in consultation with and on behalf of its local residents. As part of the work, carried out by Groundwork East, an Action Plan for the community was developed.

The Plan contains many helpful suggestions for residents, which we hope you will agree are of relevance to anyone living and working in Suffolk.
