Summary of Natural Environment Away Day

Report of the Executive Director Environment.


Members considered a report of the Executive Director Environment, which presented the second drafts of four of the five strategies agreed at the Open Spaces & City Gardens away day on 20 June 2022.


In response to a query from a Member, Members were informed that the strategy in relation to Conservation and Nature Resilience had not been updated as the Officer responsible for this area of work had left the City Corporation. Members were informed that this strategy would be updated and presented to the Committee at the next meeting.


Members noted that the Natural Environment Division was seeking its approval to develop a culture and heritage strategy. Members discussed whether it was within the powers of the Committee to approve such a decision. Some Members were of the view that the Committee’s terms of reference should first be updated.
