Sustainable BoA

Working in partnership with Climate Friendly Bradford and others to put sustainability at the heart of all our thinking and working.

Background: Traffic is overwhelmingly cited as Bradford on Avon’s biggest problem. The impact on health, pedestrian safety, tourism and economic viability (etc.) cannot be overstated. There have been numerous efforts to resolve this problem. None has been successful.

Conclusion: Either the problem is unsolvable or the efforts to resolve it have been inadequate.

Three meetings took place between July and September 2012 to come up with an action plan to tackle the air quality problem that exists in Bradford on Avon. A report was then put together by Jim Lynch from BoACAN and Peter Dunford, the Area Board Manager. You can download the full report by clicking on the link below.


Community First has set up a new service that will reduce the cost of your domestic heating oil each time you place an order. All you need to do to take advantage of the scheme is to pay an annual membership fee, which will cover as many oil orders as you need during the course of the year.

Let your local co-ordinator know you want to buy oil. Each month they submit a total village order to Community First. Your order increases our negotiating power, so once submitted we regard it as binding. Then sit back whilst we negotiate the price. For more information go to their website:
