Dear Mr Cole

 

I am writing in response to your request for information below.

 

As I understand it you are seeking to know:

 

1)      Do you have a Climate Change Adaptation Strategy and/or Policy (or
similar)?  If so please attach.

Please see attached

 

2)      Has this document been adopted by Council or Cabinet (or similar),
if so, when?

Latest version agreed by Cabinet in April 2009

 

3)      Has a Councillor been assigned to champion this Strategy/Policy
(or similar), if so, who?

The Council takes a strategic approach to this matter and it cuts across a
number of Cabinet portfolios, though the Cabinet Member for Planning,
Recycling & Transportation leads on this. To underline the importance,
in 2007 the Leader of the Council and Chief Executive signed
the Nottingham Declaration to show the Council's commitment to tackling
climate change

 

4)       Is the strategy/policy (or similar) supported by an
action/programme/project plan? If so, please attach.

Yes - see the attached  strategy

 

5)      Is this plan delivering on time and to budget?

N/A there is no specific budget attributed to the strategy  as it sets out
high level priorities rather

than detailed interventions.

 

6)      What are those timescales and budget?

N/A

 

7)      Are progress reports provided to Cabinet/Council (or similar), if
so, please attach.
The Cabinet receives updates on matters in relation to the strategy
regularly, e.g. Carbon reduction updates annually and through it's review
of the Council's sustainable planning policies. 

 

The Council's corporate policy overview committee are also conducting a
review into carbon reduction and a summary of the review to date is
available from the link below.
