Energy & Environment
Part of PLANED’s work is to assist local people to understand sustainable development and engage in projects which safeguard and enhance local biodiversity and the natural and built heritage. The Valuing the Environment project not only helps the environment and contributes to the local quality of life, it also strengthens the economy through extending sustainable tourism and recreation opportunities.
PLANED has been at the forefront of encouraging communities to investigate the possibilities of developing alternative forms of energy and has established the Community Energy Network. PLANED has been active in raising awareness of alternative energy issues and opportunities among the farming community through the Pembrokeshire Sustainable Agriculture Network.
The Pembrokeshire Community Growing Network has been set up with the help of PLANED to provide support for the growing interest in allotments and growing our own food in the County
