4. Our Proposed Responses 

This section presents our proposed responses grouped by the themes which the Assembly considered.  

This section presents our proposed responses grouped by the themes which the Assembly considered.  

In developing our responses we have cross-referenced the Assembly’s recommendations with the Interim Devon Carbon Plan (IDCP), to ensure that new actions don’t duplicate pre-existing actions. Where necessary, we have proposed amendments to actions in the IDCP to incorporate the insights of the Assembly.  

We use tables to show you each Assembly resolution, condition or supporting recommendation. Within each table we state: 

  • The level of support that the resolution, condition or supporting recommendation received from the Assembly.  
  • The identification (ID) letter number we have given to our proposed response. 
  • What the Interim Devon Carbon Plan (ICDCP) already says about a resolution, condition or supporting recommendation.  
  • Our proposed response.  

Where we propose no action in response to an Assembly’s recommendation we state our reason.  

The Devon Climate Emergency Partnership is a collaboration of 29 public, private and voluntary organisations from across Devon with diverse requirements and responsibilities. Therefore, the partnership’s responses to the Assembly’s recommendations have been worded to state a clear intention, yet be flexible enough so that all of these diverse  organisations  can support and adopt the responsesthem. More specific Ddetail on theabout how the responses will be implemented ation of the responses will be developed by partners, considering their local context, will emerge as the Devon Carbon Plan is delivered.  organisations as appropriate in their local context.

Assembly Resolution, Condition or Supporting Recommendation Onshore Wind Resolution 1. In principle, we support the development of more onshore wind turbines in Devon. 
Supported by 89% of members 
Response ID A) 
Existing Response in the Interim Devon Carbon Plan (IDCP) Action E1 in the Energy Supply chapter of the IDCP proposes the development of an energy strategy for Devon. A sub-action (E1.1) is to update assessments of the accessible renewable energy resource available in Devon. 
Our Proposed Response The partnership agrees that onshore wind should be part of Devon’s energy mix. Therefore, tThe supporting text to action E1 in the IDCP will be updated to state that wind will be included in the assessments. This will identify where wind installations could be built.
