The One Planet Council is an independent voluntary body supporting One Planet Development in Wales and beyond.
We provide a bridge between applicants and local planning authorities, with guidance and tools to support anyone making the transition to this more sustainable way of life. We also work with those who have already made that leap, with policymakers, academics and landowners.
Broadly representative, the council comprises people from all walks of life, including specialists with knowledge and experience in related areas of planning, building, farming, land-management, climate science, self-employment, economics and well-being. Monthly meetings are held at the University of Wales, Trinity Saint David, Carmarthen. All are welcome.
Our aim is:
– To enable a broad range of exemplar One Planet Development projects throughout Wales, comprised of people from all walks of life.
– To see these sites serve as an inspiration to the people of Wales and beyond.
The Welsh Government has committed itself to a more sustainable Wales for current and future generations. One Planet Developments can make a useful contribution. In this consultation paper Paul Wimbush co-founder of the Lammas Eco-Village, makes the case for One Planet Development smallholdings throughout Wales.
We are currently building up a list of patrons, which may be seen here. Patrons Support the work of the Council through any of: outreach, reputation, advocacy and their knowledge and experience. If you would like to act as a patron of the One Planet Council, do let us know.
