Wrington is a large rural parish which extends from the wooded land on Wrington Hill and around the airport then south and east across agricultural land towards the Mendip Hills AONB. It is essentially a rural landscape which includes the villages of Wrington and Redhill. This is a working environment which is sensitive to impacts on several levels.
The Council has limited powers relating to environmental issues but works closely with North Somerset Council (NSC), which is able to act on a range of related matters.
This is a list of typical environmental issues which are considered by the Council from time to time but are not covered in detail elsewhere on the website:
- Conservation of the built and natural environments
- Heritage and Listed Buildings
- Landscape designation, land use, visual impacts
- The natural environment, including trees, hedges, woodland and wildlife
- Open space management, street cleaning, grass verge maintenance
- Animal control and fouling, pest control
- Environmental protection, pollution, graffiti, fly tipping
- Noise and lighting impacts
- Drainage and, not least, the potential effects of climate change.
