6. Questions by Members of the Public

Any views or opinions expressed in the question set out in this Agenda paper are those of the person submitting the question and do not necessarily reflect the position, views or opinions of the Council.

 

Pursuant to Procedure Rule 10.1, the Corporate Director of Governance and Regulatory Services to report the receipt of the following question submitted on notice by a member of the public:  

 

Climate Emergency

 

“On 5th March 2019, Carlisle City Council passed a motion declaring a climate emergency.  This was followed on 1st May 2019, when a national declaration of an environment and climate emergency was passed by UK parliament. I would like to know what steps the council has taken, or is planning to take, to reduce the carbon emissions of Carlisle, which will help to “make the Council’s activities net-zero carbon by 2030”.

 

My question’s inspiration comes from personally witnessing the excessive use of light coming from most high-street stores in Carlisle city centre, with only a small minority opting to switch off their lights overnight. Whilst I understand that the council will have little or no control over the decisions made by retail outlets, I have felt repeatedly disappointed by the large LED screens in the windows of Carlisle Town Hall that circulate images into the early hours of the morning. This appeared to me to be a gross, public misuse of energy and somewhat contradictory to the council’s commitment to “urgent action” in addressing its self-declared climate emergency.

 

With this all in mind, how does the council continue to “ensure that all strategic decisions, budgets and approaches to planning decisions are in line with a shift to zero carbon by 2030”?

8. Questions from Members of the Council

Any views or opinions expressed in the question set out in this Agenda paper are those of the person submitting the question and do not necessarily reflect the position, views or opinions of the Council.

 

Pursuant to Procedure Rule 11.2, the Corporate Director of Governance and Regulatory Services to report the receipt of the following question submitted on notice by Councillor Dr Davison:

 

“At the health and wellbeing scrutiny meeting on 11th June, members discussed how to maintain the increase in walking and cycling that has been a feature of the lockdown.

Following the discussion, Councillor Ellis stated that things have been different during the pandemic, and that the council’s aim was to get the economy back to normal as soon as possible with people back to work, “car parks filled up” and the city centre full of shoppers.

In response it was suggested that this needs to be a time for change if we are to have any chance of tackling our climate and environmental crisis in the timescale demanded by it, with a key importance of us not going back to our previous “business as normal” and current economic model which has been damaging to our health and the environment that sustains us. Also mentioned was that there are other economic models, such as the doughnut economics model, which is much more sustainable and works within the framework of our existing planetary resources.

In response, Cllr Ellis said that he wanted to make it very clear that “We (this council) have no intention of changing the economic model.”

How, then, will Carlisle City Council tackle the climate and ecological emergency if there is an unwillingness to consider exploring different economic models from that of unlimited growth and carbon emissions which are a root cause of the climate and ecological crisis in the first place?”
