Sixteen different groups have signed an open letter calling on Manchester City Council to put forward the “strongest possible set of proposals” when the revamped scrutiny committees are agreed at the next meeting of Full Council on Wednesday 31st March. They range from grassroots campaigning groups like Whalley Range Climate Action, through campaigns for tenants rights (Acorn), social enterprises (Kindling) to Manchester Museum.
We are dead proud of them all.
When the Council releases the text of their proposed rejig (which may not be until Weds 24th March, or even later), we will look at it closely. Unless the remit for the Climate Scrutiny Committee explicitly includes the whole city’s emissions, we will be asking you to contact your councillors with a “this isn’t good enough, please amend” message.
