Additional documents:




This report set out details of how the Council proposed to respond to the ‘Climate Change Emergency Motion’ passed by Full Council on 25 April 2019, as set out at Appendix B to the report. 


Proposed action, which was detailed in Section 3 of the report, included holding a workshop on 1 July 2019 for officers across the Council to scope the wider piece of work; developing a cross-cutting action plan; establishing a cross-party Member Advisory Group to set direction and monitor success and developing an Officer Steering Group to ensure the action plan is produced with relevant measures to be progressed and reported on.


Decision number:



The Cabinet agreed the approach to tackling climate change, as set out in section 3 of the report, including the establishment of the Climate Change Member Advisory Group, its membership and terms of reference, as set out in Appendix D to the report.


The Cabinet agreed to delegate authority to the Director Regeneration, Culture, Environment and Transformation and Deputy Chief Executive, in consultation with the Deputy Leader and Portfolio Holder for Housing and Community Services, to report the findings of the workshop along with a project plan and draft Climate Change Action Plan to the initial Climate Change Member Advisory Group meeting in September 2019.




This will enable the Cabinet to respond to the motion agreed by Full Council in April 2019.
