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.
