A SECOND ‘Green Cafe’ event held by ACE Settle (Action on the Climate Emergency, Settle and Area), was held at Sugar and Spice Cafe in the town on Saturday.

Representatives of Craven District Council and Settle Town Council attended to discuss each council’s plans to tackle climate change, and residents had the opportunity to give their feedback on draft plans.

Rob Atkins, exchequer and performance manager at CDC outlined actions from the draft CDC Climate Emergency Plan.

The plan, covering a broad range of topics including carbon neutral energy, carbon neutral development, land and nature, and travel and transportation, has been collated using input and feedback from a range of stakeholders.

At its January meeting, Settle Town Council declared its commitment to become a carbon neutral organisation by 2030. Town clerk Rebecca Hill and deputy town clerk Ian Orton outlined measures proposed by the town council to achieve their carbon reduction ambition.

These actions include using green transportation, installing a water fountain and electric vehicle charging point in the marketplace, and switching lighting supplies onto green electricity.

Green Cafés are held on the second Saturday of every month at Sugar and Spice Café between 10am and 12pm.
