Are You Interested In Our Climate?


Parish and Town Councils throughout the area are having to face the Climate Emergency.  They realise that many of the solutions lie with Districts, with Counties, and with national and international action, but they also feel that local people must be involved at a local level.  It is time to do something.  But what?
One action is a Climate Emergency Report Network. Each parish should appoint a person to report to the parish council every year, and also be one of a network of such reporters from every parish/town in the area. That way we can not only monitor what is happening in our place, but share ideas with others.
The reporter may have some experience in one of the many areas affecting the climate, but certainly not all.
Should you require further information please contact Karen Wass.

  • Sports facilities
  • Children's play area
  • Parking opposite the village hall for hall users
  • A new footpath and bridleway
  • 8 acres of community owned space
  • 5 open market houses which will fund most of the above
  • (If you are new to the village and/or would like more information please contact any of the above who will be pleased to discuss the project with you.)
  • Devon County Council transferred the land and farmyard to the Parish of Roborough. The Roborough Community Partnership has spent the last 14 years developing the project and obtaining the planning permission. The Roborough Community Property Association Ltd (RCPAL) was formed, by 4 founder shareholders, to take on the ownership of the assets on behalf of the Parish and complete the development.
  • Every adult in the parish, who is committed to the aims of the Trust as set out in the Registered Rules is entitled to become a shareholder of the RCPAL. A copy of the rules can be obtained from the Secretary.
  • As a shareholder you will have the opportunity to shape the future activity of the RCPAL and vote on proposals at meetings. Shareholder forms are available from the Treasurer.
  • The RCPAL are managed by a Board of Trustees. If you would like to become a trustee and feel that you have a strong commitment to the project or a particular skill which would enhance the board we would ask you to apply to the Chairman at the address above. All expressions of interest will be kept in the strictest confidence. The RCPAL board always welcome skills such as financial management, property management, community or commercial development or any other skill that you feel might aid the RCPAL's activities.
  • We hope that you will take this opportunity to become involved as a shareholder or as a trustee on this important project to provide for the future
