Background: At their meeting of the Overview and Scrutiny Committee on the 18th of November members agreed that a Task and Finish Group should be convened to ensure the Council has a published plan to become Net Zero Carbon by 2050.  This follows the Council’s resolution on the 10th of December 2019:

‘Lichfield District Council recognises that a climate change emergency exists and in consequence, resolves to take this into account as a factor in future decisions of the Council and accepts that specific actions are necessary and therefore resolves that it will:

·         Support the Government’s target of Net Zero Carbon Emission by 2050

·         Actively consider investment in green technologies

·         Ensure that, where appropriate, decisions made by the Council consider Environmental Impact

·         Ask an Overview & Scrutiny Committee to investigate initiatives that will reduce our impact on the environment

·         Name a specific Cabinet member for Climate Change’



To discuss and agree the stages (timetable) of a work programme for the Task Group and the date and agenda for the next meeting
