SSB was set up in 2006 and is a charitable company limited by guarantee.
The organisation promotes and delivers actions, projects and initiatives that encourage public participation in helping to ensure the long term sustainability and character of the local area, at the same time increasing social cohesion and developing skill sets in the community.
- meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs
- conserving and protecting the physical and natural environment, mitigating against the effects of climate change and impacting directly upon energy use.
Our aims are set down formally as ‘objects’ in our ‘Articles of Association‘ and are also reflected in SSB’s new ‘vision statement’, which followed a members survey and extensive consultations, and was launched at the 2021 AGM:
“Creating a net-zero carbon community, where people and nature thrive”
SSB will achieve this by continuing our current innovative projects as well as creating new strategic focal points of Energy and Transport.
We welcome everyone in our community to be Inspired and Empowered to Collaborate with us in achieving this vision .
