The documents below offer some ideas on living more sustainably day-to-day. (Text by Cllr Jane Walker.)


Working closely with Mendip District Council, Somerset County Council, neighbouring parishes and community groups, the Parish Council Environmental Working Group meets to consider and pursue a range of local, national and international issues.

Other topics and themes being explored

  • Biodiversity and wildlife work includes monitoring Ash dieback, replanting land in Easton and Wookey Hole and incorporating planting and wildlife corridors along foot and cycle paths.

Please see also the dedicated pages to The Mendip Hills AONB, Nature Reserves and SSSIs in the parish.

There are also parish maps that show environmental features.

Woodland Project at Easton Jubilee Playing Field: over the summer and winter of 2020, the Easton Wildlife Group and other local volunteers have been putting their plans for tree-planting into action. Please have a look at their write-up about the project on the Easton Village page.
