2 Proiry Close, Chepstow
Description: The age of cheap oil is drawing to a close and climate change already threatens. Transition Chepstow is a community initiative that is trying to find local solutions to these global problems. Our aim is to help Chepstow and the surrounding villages to fight climate change and thrive by becoming more sustainable, less reliant on oil and a more sociable place to live. The initiative is part of a rapidly growing network of Transitional communities across the UK, who are planning and designing ways to use less energy and resources to make their towns more resilient to the impact of climate change and more pleasurable places to live.
