QUESTION BY COUNCILLOR EDWARD THOMAS TO COUNCILLOR EMLYN DOLE, LEADER OF THE COUNCIL

 

“The Welsh Government has been recently criticised by the Road Haulage Association for the delays in implementing its Transport Strategy, in particular the M4 relief road Newport.

 

Do you think that this failure to improve the links East - West is having a detrimental effect on the Carmarthenshire economy. What would you say to Mark Drakeford Frist Minister about this?

TO CONSIDER THE FOLLOWING NOTICES OF MOTION:-

7.1

NOTICE OF MOTION SUBMITTED BY COUNCILLOR ALED VAUGHAN OWEN

 

“There is global consensus that climate change poses significant risk to our health, our economy, our environment, and endangers the wellbeing of future generations. Scientific evidence clearly demonstrates that we have no more than 12 years to limit a climate catastrophe and even locally, here in Carmarthenshire, we are dealing with significant challenges closely linked to a changing climate. Cities, Local Authorities and communities across Wales and the UK are becoming frustrated by governments that are unwilling to take the urgent steps needed, to deal with these issues.

 

Humanities’ future depends on today’s bold and brave leaders to make the necessary decisions now in order to safeguard the environment, our future and those of generations to come.

 

Therefore, we propose that Carmarthenshire County Council

 

1.     Declare a Climate Emergency

2.     Commit to making Carmarthenshire County Council a net zero carbon local authority by 2030

3.     Develop a clear plan for a route towards being net zero carbon within 12 months

4.     Call on Welsh and UK Governments to provide the necessary support and resources to enable effective carbon reductions

5.     Work with Public Services Board and Swansea Bay City Deal partners to develop exciting opportunities to deliver carbon savings

6.     Collaborate with experts from the private sector and 3rd sectors to develop innovative solutions to becoming net zero carbon.”
