Green Living Plan
Draft Green Living Plan
At a public meeting on Tuesday 19 June 2018, Councillors voted for the Green Living Plan (GLP) to go to consultation. The GLP has been created by the RSA Thame Group, a local group of Fellows of the Royal Society of Arts, Manufactures & Commerce, who were appointed by Thame Town Council as honorary consultants to assist in the creation of a GLP for Thame. The draft document is now available to view below. The consultation period ran from 21 August to 30 September 2018.
Copies of the Green Living Plan are available to view in the Town Hall.
What is a Green Living Plan?
The GLP is a plan to protect and improve the environment of Thame for the long-term health and vitality of the town and its community. Thame will be producing a new Neighbourhood Plan over the next two years and the Green Living Plan is intended to be a key part of the evidence base supporting and influencing the forthcoming revision of the Thame Neighbourhood Plan. The aim of the GLP is to help ensure that, as Thame grows and develops, the town remains a green, pleasant and healthy place to live and work. It should raise awareness and encourage action to enhance community quality of life.
What will it cover?
The GLP summarises the background and relevant principles and goes on to concentrate on 5 key focus areas, colour-coded for easy reference:
Green – Spaces and Routes – Blue – Water and Drainage – Red – Energy and Efficiency – Grey – Air and Environment – Brown – Waste and Reuse
