Report of Executive Director Environment.


The Committee received a report of the Executive Director Environment concerning the management and operational activities for the Queen’s Green Canopy, a tree planting initiative in the City.


In response to a question, Officers informed the Committee that they would explore whether the Corporation was eligible for carbon credits.


In response to a query from the Chair of the Hampstead Heath Committee, Members were informed that the plans for tree planting at Hampstead Heath were in the preliminary stages and that a proposal was being developed in conjunction with the Assistant Director of Hampstead Heath to determine whether the plan was possible. It was confirmed that a meeting would be set up with the Chair of the Hampstead Heath Committee at an appropriate point if the plans were to progress.


The Committee agreed that it would be important to obtain a wider policy perspective before progressing these plans.


RESOLVED – That the report be noted.
