From Tavistock’s Neighbourhood Development Plan to national policies on climate change: we do have a voice as citizens. At the time of posting it seems to be consultation season! On this page we signpost a selection of current ones, updated on a rolling basis. The answers have to be analysed and taken into account – so supportive as well as critical comments matter. Lets use our freedom to speak up.
For opportunities to meet up, share ideas, and get involved see our Events summary, which links to in-person and online events we organise. Ideas for more? Get in touch to discuss.
In consultation with Learn Devon we have decided to postpone the workshop about how to engage people in responding to climate change, previously announced for 8th December. We hope to reschedule this in 2022. Meanwhile we will signpost relevant resources on our Climate Matters page.
We’ve got a stall at two great events which showcase local organisations working for the health of people and planet. Drop in to find out more about what we do and how you can be involved.

Our Zoom event on 27th January covered an introduction – as we see it – to how the plan and consultation work, and some of the themes it covers. More detail on our Climate Matters page. Since then a poster summarising the plan in 8 points has been released.
Our Travel Action Group has been unable to hold meetings in recent months due to coronavirus restrictions, but we have been keeping in touch in other ways. We’ve contributed to a round table on active travel. See the Travel section of our website for more about our activities and ways to get involved.
