Environment and Climate Change Scrutiny Committee
Purpose of committee
Scrutiny Committees represent the interests of local people about important issues that affect them. They look at how the decisions, policies and services of the Council and other key public agencies impact on the city and its residents. Scrutiny Committees do not take decisions but can make recommendations to decision makers about how they are delivering the Manchester Strategy, an agreed vision for a better Manchester that is shared by public agencies across the city.
The Environment and Climate Change Scrutiny Committee deals with environmental issues concerning the city; The Climate Change Strategy; Waste; Carbon Emissions (and Climate Change); Neighbourhood Working; Flood Management; Planning policy and related enforcement and Parks and Green Spaces.
The Council wants to consult people as fully as possible before making decisions that affect them. Members of the public do not have a right to speak at meetings but may do so if invited by the Chair. If you have a special interest in an item on the agenda and want to speak, tell the Committee Officer, who will pass on your request to the Chair. Groups of people will usually be asked to nominate a spokesperson. The Council wants its meetings to be as open as possible but occasionally there will be some confidential business. Brief reasons for confidentiality will be shown on the agenda sheet.
