Fixed Penalty Notices Review 2023

25/01/2024 - Fixed Penalty Notices Review 2023

The Officer’s report provided an update on progress on the 2022/23 actions of the Council’s Climate Change Strategy 2021-26.


Decision of Leader of the Council

      i.          Noted the progress achieved in implementing the actions in the Climate Change Strategy and Carbon Management Plan.

     ii.          Approved the updated Climate Change Strategy action plan.


Reason for the Decision

As set out in the Officer’s report.


Any Alternative Options Considered and Rejected

Not applicable.


Scrutiny Considerations

The Committee received a report from the Strategy and Partnerships Manager.


In response to Members’ questions:

      i.          The Strategy and Partnerships Manager said the Officer’s report set out a range of activities taken by the City Council to reduce emissions. The retrofit guide had been promoted fairly extensively. Partnership opportunities had been used to promote guides and retrofitting work.

     ii.          The Executive Councillor said she would like to reach out to more people to better promote how to reduce emissions. Referred to actions taken in a Cambridge Matters article. Having someone as a physical presence in a location (to provide information) was not viable at present but could be considered in future by the City Council and partners.

   iii.          The Assistant Chief Executive said some emissions had fallen due to actions taken by the City Council and some because the National Grid was using cleaner energy.


The Committee unanimously resolved to endorse the recommendations.


The Leader approved the recommendations on behalf of the Executive Councillor.


Conflicts of Interest Declared by the Executive Councillor (and any Dispensations Granted)

No conflicts of interest were declared by the Executive Councillor.
