Communities Overview and Scrutiny Committee – 15th September 2015

The Communities Overview and Scrutiny Committee has a full and varied agenda for its next meeting, which will be held at Shire Hall in Warwick at 2pm on 15th September.

The Council passed a motion, asking members to look at air quality and the initial report on this will be submitted. There is an annual update on part-night street lighting, including the savings achieved and progress with the installation of LED lights. An update on the local flood risk strategy is also provided to this meeting, as this strategy has just entered its second round of public consultation. A review of the Household Waste Recycling Centres is taking place and members will have the opportunity to consider feedback from the County Waste Partnership in adding their thoughts on the future proposals.

The Energy Plan Task and Finish Group has just completed its work and the review report will be presented for the Committee’s approval and referral to Cabinet. This review has looked both at fuel poverty and energy generation aspects, with wide engagement of local authorities, specialist companies and the third sector.

Add to this the regular updates on the Coventry and Warwickshire Local Enterprise Partnership,  questions to the Portfolio Holders and monitoring the first quarter One Organisational Plan, and this promises to be a busy meeting.
