To receive and consider correspondence from Cllr Constance – Cabinet Member for Environment – on initiatives being taken by Oxfordshire County Council in response to climate change.
The Committee received and considered a communication from Oxfordshire County Council regarding local climate initiatives.
The Chair noted that Zero Carbon targets were broadly the same as the Town Councils, with a date of 2050 set for the whole of Oxfordshire. The committee discussed initiatives concerning the piloting of community, wind and solar power, as well as a county-wide policy on electric vehicle charging in public car parks. The committee agreed that the Town Council should be considering how best to work collaboratively with the County Council on achieving these aims, possibly allowing use of the car parks in the Council’s estate in the future.
RESOLVED: that the communication from Oxfordshire County Council be noted.
