Re-imagining our village
Updated: Sep 29, 2022
After a highly successful Festival, the village has spoken
This is a list of resident's views on the subject of sustainability, gathered at the festival held on 25/26th June. You may notice the childrens' contributions in amongst them!

Protecting our environment - what do you value? What would you change if you could?
Is there anything that you are worried about? What should we prioritise in our village?
Transport: car shares, bike route through village
We need a better and more reliable bus service. Where are the feeder buses that were promised
Worried about heating my house without gas, it's too small for the large tank needed for heat pump. Heat pumps serving several houses would be an idea, but the community has to come together
I value wild open spaces! Accessible to everyone
As others say, more buses in the villages and more affordable tickets
Farmers - let hedges grow! Stop mowing verges. Nature reserves are not enough
Make houses by melting down old bricks
More accessible household recycling facilities to prevent fly tipping
No houses to be built without full insulation, solar panels etc
Robots that can clean the air
Wildflowers: rec and other areas only cut once a year. Village free-cycle on fb village page
More solar panels on houses
Tool swap or give-away
Swavesey 2030 - what does it look like? Tell us your vision for a sustainable future.
A library of stuff, sharing things that are rarely used with other residents (eg strimmers, rotavator, shredder)
A 15-minute village, everything accessible by walking/cycling
No more taking flights
Share/swap part used tins of paint/varnish etc
More flowers, less lawn
More parks, a water fountain, a hotel, shops, a soft play, ice cream shop, a wood and a pond
Let's get together to make some of this happen.
