Sutton Council declared a Climate and Ecological ‘emergency’ without actually committing to a target date to be carbon neutral that recognizes the EMERGENCY The Green Party policy of a target of 2030 was the basis of a petition debated and voted through at the full Council meeting. The Council declared an emergency without actually committing to a target date to be carbon neutral. Sadly the Libdems with the exception of 3 rebels were not willing to commit to this date. They subsequently voted on another date of 2045 without any explanation of why the earlier date was unachievable. The minutes of the meeting have still not been published on the Sutton Council website.
