    Our View

    In order to reduce the chances of runaway Global warming and limit the effects of Climate Breakdown, it is imperative that each of us reduce our CO2 eq (carbon equivalent) emissions from their current 6.5 tonnes per person to less than 2 tonnes without delay1. The Council believes all governments have a duty to limit negative impacts of Climate Breakdown and the local government recognises it cannot and should not wait for national government to act. We aim to work with the local community to ensure Wells is a more sustainable city in which to live, work and visit.

    Plastic-Free Wells

    Following a resolution passed by Wells City Council in March 2018 we respectfully request that you do not bring any single-use plastic to Council premises; i.e. any plastic cutlery, plates, cups, coffee cups, cling film, Styrofoam boxes or plastic confetti. We are supporting a reduction in throw-away plastic to help the environment and to reduce this kind of waste and would appreciate your co-operation.
