Climate Change Policy

Climate  Change Action Plan Community Working Group

(CCAP)


 

Our SHIRA President - Rod Blake - has been appointed to this Council convened group. The  role of each member of this group is to act as an advocate on behalf of the local community for the Council’s Climate Change Action Plan and provide assistance and advice in the development of the “Community Engagement Program”.

As Rod Blake says...

"As you know, we were very vocal in responding to Council with regard to the Climate Change Action Plan (CCAP) that they basically snuck up on us with. We did in fact make a presentation to the Councillors regarding our opposition to particularly the Planned Retreat side of the policy and fortunately this has been taken off the page at this stage.

Following up from this I decided that I would put my name forward to try and involve myself in the CCAP committee that they were looking at creating and have been successful in attending those meetings.

These are regarding the Climate Policy that has now been adopted by Council. So it's not an opposition to, it's a means of,  planning how they're going to release and involve more of the community with their Action Plans. We are trying to get all these minutes up on our website, so as soon as we have some information as to whether that's possible and how we can do it, we will respond to everybody via emails and on the Facebook page.

I’m there as an observer and putting our two cents worth in.

So stay tuned and we'll look to try and keep it as reasonable as possible."

 


 

After stepping down as President of SHIRA at the March 2020 AGM, Rod Blake remained on this Working Group in order to continue representing the Community.

However... when a question was asked of Rod on 19 November 2020 about where the Working Group was at, he replied
"As far as I am aware all the community consultation has been put on hold. I haven’t had any communication now for probably 5 months or more. "

So appears at this stage the Group is very INACTIVE.
Maybe it will restart once we have our CEO and Councillors after the September 2021 Council elections.
