In 2020 the Parish Council voted to declare a Climate Emergency. Hampshire County Council has done the same. The Greening Campaign was set up by campaigner Terena Plowright in response to the threat of global warming. It is an innovative idea to help motivate us to reduce our energy consumption and therefore lower our personal and community carbon footprint. This campaign has been taken up by a number of towns and villages in South East England. Our County Council is also promoting the Greening Campaign. Milford on Sea will be the first village in NFDC to add its voice to the initiative.
On Feb 2nd this year Milford-on-Sea Parish Council adopted Phase 1 of the Greening Campaign. This Campaign is designed to involve the whole of the village and its objective is to seek to persuade as many people as possible to make small changes in their behaviour at home and so reduce the CO2 emissions of the village. This is therefore a significant opportunity for our Community to take action against Climate Change.
Following a campaign to raise awareness in the village about the Greening Campaign, residents will be invited to vote on their preferred challenges out of suggested measures to reduce the emission of CO2 for the village.
Subsequently each household will receive a card setting out the result of the vote and listing the preferred challenges . There will be a public meeting to launch the campaign.
Each household which adopts the challenges will be asked to place the card in their window in a place where they can easily be seen and following a period of time these cards will be collected to calculate the effect of the challenges accepted on the carbon emissions for the community as a whole.

Milford-on-Sea Parish Council will shortly formally adopt the new public open space north of School Lane when the housing has been completed as shown on the attached map here. No decisions have been made for this land except those made at the public enquiry for small scale play equipment to be provided for younger children at the southern end of the site as well as 8 small allotment plots and a car parking area at the northern point of the site.
The Parish Council considers it is essential that all interested residents and groups have a full opportunity to express their views as to how they consider the remaining land can best be used. To this end, the Parish Council is conducting this full consultation beginning on 15th March which will run to the end of April. The Parish Council will then set out proposals for a final period of consultation in the light of the views that have been gathered.
The Parish Council recognises that there may be strongly held and differing views within the community. The aim of the Council is to ensure all residents have a full opportunity to be consulted, to express their view and to consider the views of others.
As you can also see by the dimensions, the land is of reasonable size and the Parish Council is keen to find out from the community what additional facilities might be added to make this parcel of land beneficial to the whole community.
There are currently no limitations to what may be considered, including sport activities, additional equipment, long term projects, wildlife areas, additional planting & landscaping. Therefore, the Parish Council would like to know your thoughts and aspirations.
