WCA critique of the November 2021 Climate Change Action Plan  

WCA's principal recommendations to WCC were
  • Set interim targets for emissions reductions.
  • Appoint a cabinet member whose sole responsibility is Climate and Environment. The current portfolio holder, Cllr. Heather Timms, is also responsible for Culture.
  • Upgrade the climate emergency working group to a committee.
  • Allow public scrutiny of the climate emergency working group
  • Embed the climate emergency plan into all future WCC work.
  • Use the Met Office worst-case scenario in all further work.

Warwickshire County Council -- Democracy

WCC Cabinet meets monthly, and published the dates, agendas and minutes of its meetings. Meetings are open to members of the public, who may speak for up to three minutes at the start of the meeting, but only on agenda items. The same applies to meetings of the full council. The council normally asks members of the public to give at least two days notice of their intention to speak at a meeting.
