Dear Mr Barnes,

Thank you for your recent request for information.

As a result of the current COVID-19 pandemic, Council resources are understandably being diverted to areas of greater priority than information rights compliance. We have taken advice from the ICO and whilst your statutory request for information remains unchanged, all information requests will be subject to delays and we ask for your continued patience and understanding in relation to your enquiry.

Yours sincerely,

Dear Mr Barnes

 

Thank you for your recent request for information. Please see our
responses to your questions as follows:

 

Can you please advise me how much Wirral Council have spent towards going
Carbon neutral since  they declared a climatic emergency?

 

The Council has identified an initial budget for climate emergency of
£250k, however this is regarding as a starting budget to ensure early
actions can be undertaken. As part of the Council’s Climate Emergency
Action Plan, there will be fundamental resource and responsibility
alignment to drive actions

 

Also how many tonnes of timber have been felled and cut from our trees
here on the Wirral since that date and sold or given for biomass
incineration?

 

Wirral Council holds no recorded information in response to this
question.  Under the terms of the Forestry Commission legislation, felled
timber is measured in volume, not weight.  However as the trees removed by
the Council are either dead or dangerous, they are exempt from the
requirement to apply for such a licence so there is no record of volume
felled.

 

I trust this information assists you with your enquiries.

 

Yours sincerely
