A PANEL tackling climate change in Warwick district is making ‘good progress’ says the district council.
Since the middle of November a panel of 30 residents, reflecting the district’s population in terms of age, gender, ethnicity, deprivation, geography and attitude to climate change, have been meeting weekly to how to address climate change in Warwick district by 2030.
The sessions look at the science of climate change and the sources and effects of carbon emissions in the district, including transport.
Next year the panel will be turning their attention to housing and buildings with the aim of submitting their recommendation report in February.
All sessions are led by independent facilitators, Shared Future and are held under an oversight panel including local business representatives, community groups, local government, academics and Matt Western MP.
Warwick District Council environment spokesman Alan Rhead said: “We are very pleased with how well the inquiry is progressing so far, with high panel attendance, excellent contributions from expert speakers and great contributions from panel members. I am really looking forward to seeing the outcomes.”
