Climate emergency

Climate and Clean Air Community Reference Group (CRG)

The Climate and Clean Air Community Reference Group was formed in February 2020 and membership is made of eleven residents selected from across the borough. The remit of the Climate and Clean Air CRG is to encompass the monitoring and implementation of the CEAP and AQAP. The CRG works with the internal Council officer led Board to co-create and prioritise actions, as well as assist in increasing transparency and public understanding around the Council’s opportunities and constraints for action. The groups’ purpose is also to assist the Council in galvanising the required wider civic support necessary to deliver the ambitious changes required to respond to the declaration of an emergency.
