Transport

Transport makes up in the region of 25% of the UK's emissions. It goes without saying that getting around is an important part of our lives, particularly in a rural area. Small changes to our transport choices can save us money and reduce our impact on the environment. In addition planned changes to our infrastructure will also help make significant headway in our community's bid to reduce carbon emissions.
