Norfolk County Council committee to start climate talks




A panel of experts could be invited to give evidence to a Norfolk County Council committee charged with drawing up plans to tackle climate change.

Last month, the authority passed a motion calling for greater resources to tackle the problem locally and committees to work with officials to draw up new policies.

The council’s new administration was also urged to ensure that future policies are assessed for their environmental impact.

The issue is now set to be taken up by the council’s newly formed infrastructure and development select committee, which will meet for the first time in Norwich tomorrow.

It has been given the task of making recommendations to the full council at its meeting in November.

And a report published ahead of tomorrow’s session suggested taking evidence from experts at a meeting in July, with a view to compiling a draft report for consideration in September.

Officials say that would allow for amendments to be made by November.
