HGN are working to support Herefordshire’s local councils as they move towards a Zero Carbon Herefordshire. Through the Great Collaboration, we are inviting communities to come together and develop shared, locally-relevant, practical solutions – through discussion, information and
inspiration – in response to Herefordshire’s aspiration to be carbon neutral by 2030.
This page contains a selection of reading material and resources to help your council lower the carbon footprint of your community.
But don’t go it alone. Joining the Herefordshire Green Network gives councils the opportunity to connect with groups in their local area and to learn from other communities across Herefordshire.
So to grow our network, support our work and access free training and resources please join our network here.

The below documents are written specifically for local authorities. Though aimed at all levels, we believe that they all hold useful information and actions that can be implemented even at Parish Council level.

Case Study: Fownhope Parish Council
Case Study: Transition Leominster
Case Study: Frieburg, Germany, an example of a successful Green City
Case Study: Malvern Hills Car Club – please contact the club if you would like guidance with setting up your own car share club.
Electric Vehicle Charge Point Grants – HGN Guidance – to help you access this funding we have summarised the guidance in a way that is easy to use but if you have further questions after reading this please get in touch.
