About The Addingham Environment Group


The Environment Group, set up by the Civic Society in April 2016, is a 50-strong group of villagers committed to protecting, enhancing and, in some cases restoring the natural environment of the village and surrounding countryside for the enjoyment and well-being of both residents and visitors.

We aim to raise awareness about environmental issues within the village by organising events, engaging with other village groups and organisations, designing walks and providing leaflets and web-based information.

The group has agreed an agenda to be used to develop a village environment plan and guide the work of the group over coming years.  Progress towards the delivery of that agenda can be judged from our news and progress reports available here.

We aim to take action to protect and enhance the natural environment of the village and surrounding countryside in the following ways:

Liaise with other village groups:

One of our chief objectives, and one of the chief objectives of our parent body, the Civic Society, is to seek the involvement of all village residents and groups and thereby help to raise awareness about the energy and environmental issues we all face


Liaise with organisations outside the village:

Outside the village we are in contact with organisations that have a statutory responsibility for, or charitable interest in, our village environment. Many have provided help, advice and, in some cases, data-sets. These organisations include:

Land management and biodiversity:

Housing and the built environment:

Climate change:

Pollution:
