    Motions on Notice

    (A) The Following Motion has been submitted by Councillor Norman:

     

    That Lichfield District Council:

     

    (i) acknowledges the efforts that this council has made to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and promote renewable energy by declaring the Climate Change Emergency last year and developing a Local Procurement Policy;

     

    (ii) further recognises  

     

    • that very large financial setup and running costs involved in selling locally generated renewable electricity to local customers result in it being impossible for local renewable electricity generators to do so, 

     

    • that making these financial costs proportionate to the scale of a renewable electricity supplier’s operation would enable and empower new local businesses, or councils, to be providers of locally generated renewable electricity directly to local customers, and

     

    • that revenues received by new local renewable electricity providers could be used to help improve the local economy, local services and facilities and to reduce local greenhouse gas emissions;

     

    (iii) accordingly resolves to support the Local Electricity Bill, supported by many MPs from both sides of the house which, if made law, would establish a Right to Local Supply which would promote local renewable electricity supply companies and co-operatives by making the setup and running costs of selling renewable electricity to local customers proportionate to the size of the supply operation; and

     

    (iv) further resolves to  

    • inform the local media of this decision,
    • write to local MPs, asking them to support the Bill, and
    • write to the organisers of the campaign for the Bill, Power for People, (at 8 Delancey Passage, Camden, London NW1 7NN or info@powerforpeole.org.uk) expressing its support.

     

    (B) The following Motion has been submitted by Councillor Evans:

     

    This Council commends the work of the officers to support the transition of Council and committee meetings to an online format in the face of social distancing restrictions due to the coronavirus pandemic. This Council further understands that the use of new technology represents an opportunity for current and future elected representatives to engage a wider audience in its work, including parents or guardians with young children, commuters, shift workers and those with mobility problems. This Council resolves to continue the use of virtual meetings while social distancing restrictions remain in place and to actively consider ways of integrating video conferencing and the online streaming of Council and committee meetings when restrictions are lifted, so that it can continue to engage with the wider community.
