Since its inception, Sustainable Hockerton has aimed to invest in a wide range of activities that will make the Parish economically, socially and environmentally sustainable. Our funding comes from revenue generated by our wind turbine and solar PV systems since 2010.
Activities funded so far include solar PV arrays on local businesses; a second offer of £200 to every home and business for energy and water saving measures; the installation of a heart start kit, with related training; social events; and visits to the local sustainable living exemplar Hockerton Housing Project.
Each idea is judged on its merits against the broad sustainability criteria set out in our guidance document, on residents’ stated preferences, and on the availability of other key resources such as time and skills!
We want to hear from local residents and businesses if you have an idea you are keen to take forward.
