Henfield and the Climate and Biodiversity Emergencies

There is a worldwide initiative to promote faster action on the  Climate and Nature Emergency. Many areas across the world, including Henfield,  have declared a climate emergency.

The UK government and many local authorities including Henfield, Horsham and West Sussex declared a Climate Emergency in 2019. Here is a link to Henfield Parish Council’s Climate and Environment Plan:  https://www.henfield.gov.uk/local-climate-and-environment-plan

Our own  County Council launched the West Sussex Climate Pledge in 2019 and in 2020 is making its Draft Climate Strategy with targets to reach zero carbon by 2030.



Horsham District Council recently adopted a carbon reduction target for 2030. https://horsham.moderngov.co.uk/ieDecisionDetails.aspx?ID=341

Our District Council has also been forward thinking in developing a special five year partnership with Sussex Wildlife Trust to protect the natural environment: Wilder Horsham District.



Sustainable Henfield 2030 aims to support speedy action and change to make sure that we can play our part locally in helping achieve the shared aims of reducing carbon emissions and extinctions.
