Barry Town Council commits to be net zero carbon by 2030


Barry Town Council has committed itself to working towards net zero carbon by 2030, to alleviate climate change and support the prosperity of its community.

As part of its plan, the Council has identified a number of actions which it can take to bring its workplace, working patterns and managed assets in line with this, with residents views sought on these actions and whether there are more things it can do to support residents towards a more environmentally friendly, carbon-neutral and sustainable Barry.

The Town Council has already worked to reduce its impact on the environment including:

  • Phasing out plastic cups, replacing with mugs and biodegradable cups,
  • Reducing its printing by moving towards virtual Agendas and meeting papers
  • Establishing five Beehives, a bio-diversity pond and five bird and bat boxes at Merthyr Dyfan Cemetery

The Council is currently holding a 6-week public consultation on the new Climate Change Action plan which will run until Friday 23rd April.

In a statement the Council said “We are hoping to hear from residents, businesses, community groups, schools and young people as, it is of the utmost importance to the wellbeing of all people in Barry and of our future generations that we hear views from a wide range of people in our community.”


Those wishing to take part in the survey will have a chance to have their say, whilst being in with a chance to win vouchers.

You can respond to the consultation in English via Survey Monkey or write to Barry Town Council at Town Hall, King Square, Holton Road, Barry, with more details on the Climate Change Strategy available via the Barry Town Council Facebook page.

The Town Council will also be holding a virtual event, with details to follow.
