Funding to Combat Climate Change

Wednesday 10th March

 

Mayor of Bedford Borough Dave Hodgson went ‘up on the roof’ this week for the official launch of the Mayor’s Climate Change Fund. 

£100,000 is available right now for community projects which help to reduce carbon emissions in the borough. This week, the Mayor was joined by Environment Portfolio Holder Cllr Charles Royden to look at the solar panels on the roof of Borough Hall and highlight the kind of schemes which can be supported through the initiative.

The fund is open to schools, community groups, not-for-profit organisations and the council itself and can be used for technologies including ground source heat pumps, cavity wall insulation and solar thermal hot water panels.

Mayor of Bedford Borough, Dave Hodgson, said: “In addition to tackling climate change, the projects which take place through this scheme will have direct benefits locally, cutting energy bills and helping to create a greener Bedford Borough, so I hope lots of organisations and groups will get involved.’

“There are many different technologies out there and I look forward to finding out about the innovative ideas that come forward through the Fund.”

The Mayor’s Climate Change Fund includes over half a million pounds over the next three years for schemes which will help improve the local and wider environment and contribute to the fight against climate change.
