Bridport Town Council has committed to spending up to £100,000 on measures to prevent climate breakdown after its climate emergency action plan was voted through at Tuesday evening’s full council meeting.
Kelvin Clayton (pictured right together with fellow town councillor Julian Jones) originally proposed the Climate Emergency Declaration at the town council and said, "Six months ago we declared a climate emergency. I am delighted with the action plan and the money we have committed towards it. A lot of thought and hard work has gone into the plan which was produced by our excellent staff with the help of a very knowledgeable climate activist and fellow councillors."
"Possibly as important as the spending though are measures to communicate the climate crisis together with solutions to it."
