Items Of Business
Report by Chief Executive.
Under reference to item 1 of the Minute of the meeting of this Sub-committee held on 16 February 2021, there was submitted a report by the Chief Executive relative to the £0.698 million funding allocated to support the organisation in progressing its response to the climate emergency through a Climate Change Action Fund.  

In February 2021, this Sub-committee considered a number of funding proposals in relation to the allocation of this funding to support the Council’s climate emergency response. The funding proposals recommended at that time by the Sub-committee were subsequently agreed at a meeting of the Leadership Board on 24 February 2021.  

The report outlined proposals to allow more detailed engagement and discussion on these initiatives. The focus of these proposals was detailed in the report

In addition, the possibility of developing a Community Climate Fund to support engagement and grow local interest and small-scale climate projects was also highlighted for consideration.

It was proposed that planning matters in relation to climate change be included on the agenda for future meetings of the Sub-committee. This was agreed unanimously.


(a) That the funding proposals detailed at Appendix 1 of the report, with £70,000 to be allocated from the Climate Change Action Fund to progress those initiatives outlined be approved 

(b) That it be noted that subject to agreement, these proposals would be submitted to the Leadership Board for approval; 

(c) That it be agreed that officers develop proposals for a Community Climate Fund, for further consideration by the Sub-committee; and

(d) That planning matters relative to climate change be included on the agenda for future meetings of the Climate Change Sub-Committee.
