Notice of Motion

to consider the following motion received in accordance with Council Procedure Rule 10.1

 

(a)         By Cllrs Hodgson and Rose

 

“In line with our formal declaration of a climate and biodiversity emergency, and our commitment to actions to change behaviour to address the causes of this situation, and mitigate the impacts, this Council supports the Climate and Ecological Emergency Bill proposed by a coalition of scientists, academics and lawyers with the aim of bringing the UK’s climate policy into one with evolving scientific evidence.  Currently this also supported by 96 cross-party members of parliament.  Nationally we need a strong legislative framework that embeds the Government’s targets in law, enabling us as supportive players, to plan and develop our future trajectories, to fit in with those targets.  

 

Council therefore resolves to:

 i.        Support the Climate and Ecological Emergency Bill

ii.        Inform the local media of this decision;

iii.         Write to local MPs, asking them to support the Bill; and

iv.         Write to the CEE Bill Alliance, the organisers of the campaign for the Bill, expressing its support (campaign@ceebill.uk).
