Notice of Motion Proposed by Councillor RE Young

Bridgend County Borough Council recognises the overwhelming scientific evidence of changing weather patterns as demonstrated by the recent unprecedented rainfall and flooding both at a local and a UK wide level, and is of the opinion that this represents further evidence of global warming, and therefore firmly believes that a climate emergency now exits, and as such calls uponthe UK and Welsh Governments to provide Bridgend County Borough Council with:

 

a.    the necessary powers and resources to make Bridgend County Borough  carbon neutral

 

b.    levels of resource at a scale to respond to the challenges faced and processes for accessing those resources that enable action at the earliest opportunity

 

i)       Establish appropriate engagement mechanisms to work with key stakeholders

 

       ii)     Undertake a Bridgend County Borough Council wide review of  current action to respond to Climate Emergency

 

iii)     Develop a Climate Emergency Response Strategy and prioritised action plan that sets out short, medium and long term actions
