Councillors Vote to Expand Climate Emergency Role

Hebden Royd Town Council (HRTC) have approved the permanent appointment of a Climate Emergency and Biodiversity Coordinator within the council, as it continues to tackle climate change.

HRTC declared a climate emergency in 2019 and has since submitted a climate emergency action plan outlining steps to reach carbon neutrality by 2030, as well as creating the High Hirst Woodmeadow project, to help combat biodiversity loss and to reduce flood risk in the area.

Cllr Nikki Harvey, Chair of HRTC Climate Emergency Committee said: "We are delighted to have agreed extended hours to the post and to make the post permanent. It is a fantastic opportunity for the right candidate to drive real environmental change in Hebden Royd.

The successful applicant will work with residents, businesses and other groups across the community, with responsibilities wide ranging from active involvement in the Council's High Hirst Woodmeadow project to increasing cycle use and managing our allotment sites."
