History of GSSG
Following the Parish Planning process in Streatley it was suggested that a Sustainability Group should be formed to see how the village could be made sustainable. This was written into the Streatley Action Plan. Shortly following this a Sustainability group was formed in Streatley. Meanwhile the Goring Parish Plan also wanted to encourage Sustainability, particularly in the form of generating hydro-electricity from the River Thames. It was decided that these projects should be combined and the GSSG was developed from the two villages.
GSSG is a not-for-profit community organisation (applying for charitable status) working towards sustainable development. We are also developing a network of members to allow this initiative to grow at grass roots level to provide a local perspective in supporting, encouraging and stimulating the sharing of best practice.
