BARNINGHAM NET ZERO HISTORY
The domestic LED lightbulb project has been successfully completed, with Barningham’s electricity consumption reduced by 7,217 kWh a year, equivalent to an annual reduction of nearly 1,400 kg of carbon emissions. Meanwhile a group of Scouts helped progress hedge and tree planting in Bull Acre towards completion of the scheme.
Attention is now turning to a wider biodiversity initiative in Holmedale (Barningham’s nearest neighbours: Newsham, Dalton, Gayles, Ravensworth, and Whashton). Significant funding is available from Highways England as compensation for the loss of habitat resulting from the A66 improvement works.
