Stratford Town Council goes paperless

COUNCILLORS in Stratford are going green.

Stratford Town Council is swapping paper for electronic devices to reduce its carbon footprint.

The organisation recently declared a climate emergency – following in the footsteps of many local authorities across the UK including the district and Warwickshire County councils.

In the wake of the declaration the council has pledged to become as paperless as possible and members have been given kindle devices, or will use their own device to receive papers electronically.

And media companies will be notified by email rather than sent paper copies of agendas for upcoming meetings.

The move was tested for the first time at a meeting of the Town Hall Maintenance, Income and Wellbeing Panel.

Chairman of the panel Coun Tony Jackson said: “Some of us are a little outside our comfort zone at the moment, but we are determined to reduce our paper consumption and move with the times.”
