Further to the Motion adopted by full Council in July 2019 to develop a strategy to support the aspiration for Tonbridge and Malling to be carbon neutral by 2030 the report set out, at Annexes 1 and 2, an initial draft Climate Change Strategy and a draft Climate Change Action Plan. It was noted that the draft strategy set out the Council’s commitment to local action on climate change, biodiversity protection and enhancement and an approach to partnership working.
It was acknowledged that the strategy would evolve over time and noted that consultation with the community, key partners and stakeholders and interested groups would be undertaken between the end of February and end April 2020 with the responses to the consultation reported to the meeting of the Advisory Board to be held on 9 June 2020. It was further noted that the evolution and delivery of the Climate Change Strategy and Action Plan would encompass a number of services across the Authority with individual work streams undertaken by the appropriate board or committee.

(1) the initial Draft Climate Change Strategy and Action Plan, as set out at Annexes 1 and 2 to the report, be endorsed for consultation purposes; and
