Local committee to discuss Climate Emergency

by Ruth, Marlene, and Steve on 17 February, 2020

The next meeting of the Local Committee will be on 27 February at 7pm at the Holy Family Church Hall, Sorrento Road.  The papers are here.

There will be a presentation on the Climate Emergency.  Sutton Council has stepped up its commitment to tackling carbon emissions and rising temperatures by declaring a ‘Climate Change Emergency’.  The declaration was passed unanimously by councillors at a Council meeting last July.  The Council is now developing an action plan in partnership with local businesses, community groups and residents to meet the ambition of the whole of Sutton becoming ‘carbon neutral.’

Come and join in the discussion to help shape Sutton’s response to the climate emergency. Tell us what you think about our suggested actions, and any barriers which might prevent you from doing more.

We will also hear about the Green Flag and In Bloom awards achieved by Manor Park, which shows what can be achieved by partnership working between the Council, idverde and the community.  Maybe we can look to see what we can achieve together in Rosehill Park?

If you are interested in how the High St is developing as an arts hub, come to hear about the plans for the Sound Lounge, a grass roots music venue and community hub being developed at the old RBS building near the bottom of the High St.

From our Public Realm budget we will be considering proposals for floral displays and extending the Festive lights at Christmas further at the northern end of the High St.  Public Realm funding is important to the local community and we have this last year funded the refurbishment of the playground in Rosehill Park, and a replacement tree in Greenhill.

A reminder that the Committee can award Neighbourhood Grants of up to £1,000 to community groups.
