Mawnan is in a wonderful green area of Cornwall and is predominately contained within the Helford AONB.
As our efforts to work towards carbon neutrality we will be adding information here to help … but this is not just a section for the parish council. We hope that every group in the community, every individual in the parish and every business that does trade within our borders will try to do their small part to help with wider environment . We would love to be able to add any hints, tips, solutions or initiatives that you might know about here.
The new Cornwall AONB Management Plan 2022-2027 is now available. It’s an online document, no printed copies to be sustainable, but you can view/download specific chapters of interest.
The Sustainable Warmth Fund is the new grant-funded energy efficiency scheme from the Government.
This fund aims to improve the EPC rating of your home with a range of energy saving measures, to reduce (or offset rising) heating costs, making your home warmer and improve your general health and wellbeing.
Cornwall Council works in partnership with OVO Energy Solutions to deliver this scheme to homes in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly.
This scheme runs until March 2023. Find out if you are eligible for the scheme today.
With energy and food prices going up and climate change on all our minds, it’s never been more important to try to save energy, save money and lower our carbon emissions.
Around 21% of the UK’s carbon emissions come from our homes. There are lots of ways to cut down on the energy we use – and save on the cost of our bills. The Citizen’s Advice Bureau produced this video with information on how we can all save money and lower our carbon emissions.
You can get more information on this and other ways to cut carbon emissions, on the Carbon Neutral Cornwall Hive.
Help is available if you are struggling to pay your bills – visit our Support for Residents page for more information.
Please don’t put off contacting someone if you have money worries, there are many organisations providing help and advice.
