“The Green City Charter
The council is proposing to develop a new citywide Green City Charter which will seek
to deliver actions that will reduce pollution and waste, minimise the impact of climate
change, stop health inequalities and create a more sustainable approach to economic
growth. The Green City charter will identify a clear set of objectives that are aligned
with national priorities. As well as setting a set of commitments and actions for the
Council to deliver, it will seek support from partners across the city to do the same. A sum of
£0.03M has been identified to develop a work plan involving both internal and external
engagement to develop the proposal further, ensure priorities reflect the city’s needs and
establish a set of ambitious targets and a delivery plan for the Council. The Green City
Charter and the council’s action plan will be presented to Cabinet in spring 2019.”
