You can make a difference.  Manchester City Council is currently deciding how to change its arrangements for scrutiny so that climate change gets the regular and detailed examination it needs.

You can write to

your three councillors,

Council leader Richard Leese.

If you’ve further appetite, you can write to

your MP and

the six chairs of the existing six scrutiny committees.

Basically, however ambitious the plans are, they could be MORE ambitious.

Climate Emergency Manchester and friends have written a four-page briefing laying out some of that ambition.

In late March, roughly a week before the Wednesday 31st March meeting of full Council, we will know whether the Council is being ambitious enough.
