Portfolio Holder – Councillor Heather Timms

Additional documents:


Councillor Heather Timms (Portfolio Holder for Environment, Climate and Culture) introduced this paper which sought approval for the draft Sustainable Futures Strategy for consultation.  Councillor Timms explained that the proposals set out a direction and long-term actions to transform Warwickshire into a place that embraced sustainabilty in its widest sense with collaborative working being key to its success.  She looked forward to the engagement process which would collect views of the public and stakeholders to inform the final strategy for consideration by Cabinet in the Spring of 2023 as set out in the report.


Councillor Andy Crump, portfolio holder for Fire & Rescue and Community Safety, was supportive of the strategy, noting synergies with Warwickshire Fire and Rescue Services and the Chief Fire Officer’s lead role on Environment, Sustainability and Climate Change at the National Fire Chief’s Council.
