We the undersigned petition Woking Borough Council to Make West Byfleet a flagship eco village. More details

More details from petition creator

We, the residents of West Byfleet, feel strongly that we want to maintain the fantastic community and reputation of our village.

Understanding that climate change has come to the forefront of local, national and international news and in response to Woking Borough Council now calling a state of climate emergency, we ask Woking Borough Council (WBC) to make West Byfleet an eco village. We ask WBC to do all they can to achieve this including promoting West Byfleet to eco companies such as Terracycle and Friends of the Earth to propose that they locate their offices there with West Byfleet becoming an eco hub.

With WWF HQ now being stationed at Woking, there is an opportunity for West Byfleet to host eco shops such as recycling dropoffs, community fridges, replanting and rewilding play areas, pop ups, remakery centres and community spaces that take into account the latest technology and sustainable resources.

Woking has previously had a reputation for being ‘green’, so this could be a fantastic opportunity to create something revolutionary; for West Byfleet, Woking Borough, South East and further afield, at this time of environmental change and responsibility.
