What would be needed to decarbonise a whole village? This is the question it is hoped will be answered by a project taking place in Littlebury.
Uttlesford District Council and Essex County council are supporting Littlebury Parish Council and Saffron Walden Community Energy in the development of an overview plan to help the village move from oil heating to lower carbon options.
Cllr Louise Pepper of Uttlesford District Council says “we’re aiming to use this project as a blueprint for other off-grid villages in the district as part of our Climate Change Action Plan. We’re enormously grateful for the enthusiasm that Littlebury Parish Council is putting in to help with it. With energy bills on the rise, this is an especially timely intervention”.
