What is tillingbourne.earth?
In May 2021 Albury Parish Council agreed that we must play our part in the Climate Change Emergency and a Climate Change working group was formed (Albury Climate Emergency - ACE). Since then, the group has extended around other parishes throughout the Tillingbourne. ACE has rebranded as www.tillingbourne.earth.
They are a growing, community group of people living and working in The Tillingbourne Valley that are taking action to tackle climate change and biodiversity loss though local initiatives.
As the Tillingbourne Stream connects our villages from Leith Hill to Shalford, before flowing on to rivers and seas, we recognise that our lives are connected to nature and humanity far beyond our beautiful valley.
If you would like to be involved, please contact Andi McCann at firstname.lastname@example.org
INTRODUCTION TO LOCASE
LoCASE is a grant funding programme, offering SMEs in Guildford grants between £1,000 and £10,000, covering 40% of eligible costs, to help green your business and cut energy costs, along with an environmental training scheme and events. The funding is available for companies to implement energy efficiency measures, or business development for companies providing green products or services.
The LoCASE Programme objectives are to help small and medium businesses get greener, more competitive, profitable and future ready; to drive the growth of a low carbon economy; to lower carbon emissions from businesses and industries in Surrey and to create new jobs in the green economy by stimulating demand, supporting supply and transferring knowledge.
LoCASE has been funded by the European Regional Development Fund, and is being delivered through a partnership between Kent County Council, Surrey County Council, and other councils and universities in the South East.
LOCASE ENERGY COSTS SAVINGS
LoCASE was launched in Surrey in late 2021. Looking at some of the projects already delivered in the Brighton area we have been able to identify some key project types and average savings which can be gained.
