Your countryside and renewable energy
Join CPRE North Yorkshire, the countryside charity to share your views on renewable energy and the future of your local landscape.
We need a pro-active approach to help rural communities move towards using more renewable energy like solar, wind and hydro power, which of course means more of these projects in the countryside.
But, crucially, we want to see renewables done well – we believe that low carbon energy projects should be developed in harmony with our precious landscapes and our rural heritage.
We know how important local landscapes are to rural communities, and how important the countryside next door is to people right across the country. That’s why we want future energy projects to be in the control of local communities not developers.
Over these workshops, we will be discussing with local residents what you value about your local landscape, what your energy needs are, which types of renewables would fit best, and where they might be located.
Together, we will create a vision for the future of renewable energy in your local landscape to guide future decision making in the area.
You don’t need prior experience or knowledge, the workshops are free and we will be providing free catering each evening.
Attendance will be first come, first serve basis.
