Arising from a *report of the Head of Housing and Property Services, the Managing the Environment Policy Development Group had recommended that the updated Climate Change Strategy and Action Plan be approved.
The Cabinet Member for the Environment outlined the contents of the report stating that the Strategy and Action Plan was a compilation and summary of existing relevant documents and actions across the Council and a statement on central government policy and guidance. The document had been updated as previously agreed to ensure its accuracy reflecting other updates and emerging guidance. The authority had a good track record with the use of solar energy on housing stock and corporate buildings which promoted green credentials.
Consideration was given to:
· The lack of specific targets and any monitoring scheme
· The need for the strategy to be appropriate to the authority
· The detail in the action plan
RESOLVED that the recommendations of the Policy Development Group be approved.
(Proposed by Cllr N V Davey and seconded by Cllr P H D Hare-Scott)
