Like all councils, we have a vital role to play in cutting energy consumption, tackling fuel poverty and reducing reliance on fossil fuels. Energy efficiency and renewable energy are important issues for Wychavon residents too and they expect us to play a strong role in addressing them.

As community leaders, service providers and the local planning authority, we can help to tackle these issues across the breadth of our activities. Our Intelligently Green Plan, covering the period from April 2012 to March 2020, is our response to these challenges and expectations.

For us being ‘intelligently green' is about making choices that not only have a positive environmental impact, but also generate a return in financial or community terms

Our Intelligently Green Plan sets out our vision for a greener, more energy efficient and self-sufficient Wychavon by 2020.  It focuses on four themes: energy; construction; food, tourism and green space; and transport. 

The plan contains a series of actions for delivery between 2012 and 2015. We will develop a new set of actions in 2015. The plan concludes by explaining how we will measure progress and outlines some more detailed examples of how we're already putting our intelligently green approach into action.

We have produced a summary of our progress with the plan since its inception and other related news.
