Climate Change on St Albans Council's agenda
Good news that St Albans Council seems to be getting a bit more serious about facing up to the challenge of climate change.
This week saw the Council's first meeting of the 'Carbon Reduction Task and Finish Group' - an odd name that gives the impression we're going to solve it all in a couple of weeks. But there are signs that this group, which initially leafed through current and possible future measures, will turn in to a more formal body soon. That would mean a permanent working party examining all aspects of Council activities and looking for ways that the whole district can reduce its carbon footprint.
Green Councillor Simon Grover was at the meeting. As the group was his idea in the first place (proposed and accepted at the Council's February 2013 budget meeting), he expects to be closely involved in developments.
