The Environmental Network for Pembrokeshire – TENP
The Environmental Network for Pembrokeshire (TENP) is composed of voluntary sector environmental organisations and aims to participate in, and contribute to, the formulation and implementation of policy impacting on the environment. Our perspective on environmental issues is broad and is underpinned by the well established UK Sustainable Development Commission’s 5 principles of sustainable development.
Our contribution to policy and practice is achieved by the network’s Committee members and individual members organisations engaging with the statutory and business sectors to promote SD principles and by practicing and advocating best practice in environmentally sensitive and sustainable living. Our aim is to make Pembrokeshire a leading example of a sustainable County. Towards this end TENP Committee members: – organise two or three events a year (information can be found on this website) – produce a monthly newsletter – support our member organisations – have produced a Sustainable Development Directory – participate in the Pembrokeshire Environment Forum, a policy strategy group, with PCC, PCNP and Natural Resources Wales (previously Environment Agency, CCW, and Forestry Commission Wales), and, – participate in the Pembrokeshire Sustainable Agriculture Network (established by PLANED). – respond to local and national consultation papers, such as the recent Single Integrated Plan produced by the Local Service Board, and the White Paper on the Sustainable Development Bill.
