Right for Parish and Town Councils to Sell Electricity

PUBLIC CONSULTATION
Sustainable Communities Act – The Right for Parish and Town Councils to Sell Electricity

The Parish Council has been asked to support a proposal, via the Sustainable Communities Act, to allow parish and town councils to sell electricity generated from local schemes.
Whilst Chippenham doesn’t have any scheme in place at the moment and no imminent plans to provide one, we believe that parish and town councils should be given permission to generate income from such a scheme if it exists. District and County councils already have this permission.

The Parish Council proposes to support this bill.

If you have any comments please contact the Clerk at chippenhamparishcouncil@hotmail.com or 01638 720915.
