Reports to Council will include a section on Implications for Climate Change

6 November 2020

Council officers produce reports for council meeting for each agenda item. Each report has a section detailing the implications of the decision to be made in terms of Legal, Resources (Financial, Personnel, etc.), Equality and Risk. Dave thought that Climate Change should be on this list, to put it at the heart of the council’s decision-making, especially as AVBC have declared a Climate Emergency. He asked the AVBC Executive Director if this could be done, giving examples of other councils who had done it.

‘The Executive Director, Julian Townsend, has responded to my requests, telling me that the council will introduce a climate change section in the ‘implications’ part of council reports. This brings climate change into every decision, so it feels like a great step forward,’ says Dave.
