A series of environmental ‘goals’ to transform the Sid Valley into a cleaner and greener town will go before councillors next week.

Sidmouth Town Council will discuss on Monday (October 7) a series of proposals from the environment committee aimed at making Sidmouth a low carbon, healthy and active town.

The policy is broken down into four sections called natural environment, low carbon town, sustainability and engagement.

Among the aims would be to support the creation of sustainable homes and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

The town council would encourage businesses, residents and schools to adopt low environmental practices.

The policy document says: "Sidmouth Town Council is committed to transforming Sidmouth and the Sid Valley area into a cleaner and greener town and a more prosperous place to live and work.

"We commit to making Sidmouth a low carbon town and a healthy and active town - with a high quality built and natural environment."
