Work Programme

    Minutes:

    The Commission considered what might be useful to include in the work programme for next administrative year, bearing in mind that it will be a new Commission who ultimately set the programme of work for 2020/21. Some pointers and recommendations for further work were identified:

     

    ·  A written briefing providing an update on the strategy and associated work, by Climate Change Director, would be helpful, alongside a permanent slot on the agenda. 

     

    ·  The Commission ought to consider how to widen the pool of witness who come to meetings to provide evidence, in light of Black Lives Matter.

     

    ·  ‘The 15 minutes city’, referred to in the Air Quality report and presently being pioneered by Paris Mayor, Anne Hidalg, to enable the phasing out of vehicles, is recommended for further work.
