    1st December 2015 | News | Claire
  • Motion is below:

    “This council is working hard to promote economic growth during a very difficult period in the UK’s finances.

    “Unfortunately, thousands of jobs across the south west could now be lost as a result of dramatic cuts in subsidies to renewable energy schemes.

    “This council regrets the government’s proposal to reduce subsidies for renewable energy schemes at the speed and scale proposed and agrees to write to all Devon MPs, urging them to publicly support the community energy groups co-ordinated by Regen SW, that have united to campaign against the cuts.”
