A list of deputations received by the due date of 12noon on the 11 December 2020 will be circulated separately as part of an addendum at the meeting.

Minutes:

65.1      The Mayor reported that two deputations had been received from members of the public and that he would invite the spokesperson to introduce their deputation and for the relevant Chair to respond. He noted that 15minutes were set aside for the consideration of deputations. 

 

65.2      The Mayor welcomed Venetia Carter to the meeting and invited her to address the Council.

 

65.3      Ms. Carter thanked the Mayor and referred to the deputation and outlined the concerns in relation to the climate change and biodiversity emergency facing the city and asking what actions the council would take to address these.

 

65.4      Councillor Heley thanked Ms Carter for the deputation and stated that the Council was working towards publishing a carbon neutral plan in March 2021 and the findings of the first citizens’ assembly were due to be reported to the Environment, Transport & Sustainability and Policy & Resources Committees in January.

 

65.5      The Mayor thanked Ms. Carter for joining the meeting and noted that the deputation would be referred to the Environment, Transport & Sustainability Committee for consideration.
