On Tuesday 8 January 2013 the Neighbourhoods Scrutiny Committee of Manchester City Council will discuss two report: one on the Manchester Climate Change “Action Plan (70 pages – see MCFly’s submission to the writers here), and another on the Greater Manchester Green Deal and Energy Company Obligation (7 pages).

These two reports are now available for download here (MCC website).

Over the coming days, Manchester Climate Monthly will be analysing the reports and getting comments from various individuals and organisations. If you have opinions (especially ones based on having actually read one or both the reports!) please share them in the comments box under this post or other related posts.

neighbourhoods scrutiny 2012 spotters card-page1The Neighbourhood Scrutiny Committee is made up of 15 councillors. Its “focus is on the services that are based in local areas that have an impact on communities. It is our role to ensure that they are being run in the best interests of the residents who use them. These services include those that are vital to the effective running of a city, such as waste and planning, but also those that bring benefits to residents who access them such as culture, leisure and libraries. Our key priority is ensuring that the views of local people are influencing those making the decisions that affect them and that services are being run to benefit residents.” It is chaired by Councillor Basil Curley (Labour) of Charlestown ward.  MCFly made a “spotters guide”, which you can see alongside this post.
The meeting takes place from 2.00 pm, in Committee Room 11, Level 1, Manchester Town Hall (aka “Castle Grayskull”) [googlemap]
