Climate Emergency 2030 Working Group

About us

Established by the Town Council in 2019, we are a group of Councillors and local residents working together to reduce the carbon footprint of the Council and the Town.  We have installed solar panels, planted trees and promoted government grants for home improvements. We are making plans to do what we can to take carbon emissions to net zero.  We are working to retrofit existing buildings, set low carbon standards for new buildings, create an electric vehicle charging infrastructure and support residents and businesses. 

Further information: The Agendas and Notes from meetings are under Town Council on the home page. 

Follow us on facebook and twitter.


Current opportunities

COMING SOON! Henley Car Club.  The new car share club is ideal for those who need a car but don't want the trouble and expense of owning one, and can borrow one from Co-wheels instead! One car will be based on Upper Market Place. The other will start life nearby on the Market Place road for a few weeks before it moves to a more permanent home.

Quality low cost solar pv installations through Solar Streets, a community and Town Council partnership with IDDEA. Find out more at Henley Solar Streets.

A Community Land Trust is being considered in Henley.

 A one-stop home retrofit service for energy efficiency improvements is available from Cosy Homes Oxfordshire.

Tree planting in residents’ gardens, in land belonging to large landowners and in the Council’s estate.  To ask for trees, volunteer to help with tree planting, or organise tree planting, please contact the Projects Officer, Fiona Hewer.
