Welcome to the Greener Silver End Community Homepage

The Greener Silver End group was set up to address two environmental issues which the Parish Plan survey (in 2009) which showed that local people care about:

1) Protecting the village’s ‘Garden City’ legacy

2) Making homes more energy efficient

 

On the ‘Garden City’ side we are now working, with Braintree Council on plans to improve three green spaces in the village:

  • ·       A shady picnic area and 'community walk of fame' in the Memorial Gardens
  • ·       A Community Woodland off Temple Lane
  • ·       Improved Verges in Boars Tye Road

We hope local people will get involved in these projects by telling us what you think.  Questionnaires are being delivered to all houses in th village or you can complete it online at:

http://www.braintree.gov.uk/Braintree/environment/Greener+Silver+End.htm

 

This consultation ends on 15th November, after that we will have an open meeting where people can have their say in finalising the plans.

 

There’s a lot we can do on energy efficiency too.  We want to get a Community Carbon Footprint of the village: this would give us a picture of how much energy we use and then look at ways to reduce it.  You can help by logging on here and starting your own Carbon Footprint.

 

The Greener Silver End group is just starting: there are lots of things we can do to build on Silver End’s green legacy.  The more people who get involved, the more we can do. Why not get in touch and see how you can help (Tel. 01376 583477)?
