Video: @SirRichardLeese opens “Investing in #Nature” seminar in #Manchester

Richard Leese giving the welcome address at the “Investing in Nature” seminar yesterday.  More on this perfect example of “ecological modernisation” soon…

One point – at 8.21 he makes reference to a Green and Blue Infrastructure plan for Manchester. This is the same plan that, as reported in MCFly, has been delayed again and again.  At Full Council in July SRL told the Liberal Democrats that it was going to a scrutiny committee the “next week”.  And then it was going to go to Exec … in July, in September… and now “by the end of the year aim to have in place.”  It’s this sort of slippage (as bad as the Greater Manchester Climate Change Strategy Implementation Plan) in plans, let alone actions, that fills close observers with dread.
