Our latest news articles are on our home page as a rolling newsletter. In this archive you can find recent and past news articles:-
SEG was first set up during 2011 and after a series of ad-hoc email communications, regular email newsletters to members started in March/April 2013.
In addition to covering a wide range of environmental issues, our early emails and newsletters to members were concerned with our campaign from 2011 to re-open Saltford Station, our 2012 campaign with Transition Keynsham against coal bed methane drilling at Hick's Gate, and the village-wide campaign to protect Saltford's Green Belt from a developer's planning application that led to the Saltford (Manor Road) Green Belt Inquiry (2013).
Between 2012 and 2018 SEG lobbied Government and supported local campaigns to resist Fracking or Coal Bed Methane extraction in this area. Our campaign news is now an archive (link) following the Government's announcement in 2019 that fracking will not be allowed to proceed in England.
SEG as an independent, non-profit making body takes a politically neutral stance. We are committed to the highest editorial and ethical standards in the provision of all the content and related services for our website.
The Editor is Phil Harding (SEG Chairman) and Phil can be contacted via our home page.
Protecting Saltford's Green Belt from development is a high priority for Saltford Environment Group. The nation's Green Belt provides essential eco-system support to farmland whilst access to the countryside has health benefits for local residents as well as town and city dwellers alike.
