The Cabinet was invited to consider the progress of the Council’s 18/19 Green Prospectus and invited to approve the Green Prospectus Progress Report.
The Cabinet Member for Managed Growth introduced the report and provided both background and context as set out in the report. The report was provided to update on previously approved actions using an approved format and governance framework.
The progress report illustrated the wide variety of projects that were being delivered across all of the sustainability themes. It was important that all themes were advanced in order to ensure overall sustainability was delivered and to avoid one sustainability theme being advanced at the expense of others.
On receiving the report a view was expressed that the targets detailed in the Prospectus were not challenging enough, that in comparison to other local authorities the Council was not doing as well as it thought and there was a lack of detail around working with partners. Members supported the approach being taken which was one of an incremental approach which was sustainable and measurable and right for the Borough. Members acknowledged that there was more that needed to be done, and they were committed to progressing the work in a sustainable way.
That the progress of the Green Prospectus be noted and that the Progress Report be approved.
