Environment Statement

New Alresford Town Council acknowledges the Climate Emergency that has been declared by both Parliament and Winchester City Council. We will make a meaningful and effective long-term response to help Alresford meet the challenge that has been set.

The Town Council commits to the following actions:

  • to undertake a review of its current practices and identify practical steps towards sustainability and, ultimately, carbon neutrality and to take those steps where practicable;
  • to seek and implement the advice of experts to improve the way that the Council's public spaces encourage wildlife whilst preserving their recreational use: and
  • to engage with our community and our neighbouring parishes to encourage sustainable living and business practices and to improve the environment across our town and the surrounding area. The Council will do this by encouraging local initiatives, direct information sharing and by joining together with individuals and community groups willing to work with us.
