    Notice of Motion

    To be moved by Councillor Pancho Lewis and seconded by Councillor Geoff Barraclough:

     

    This Council notes that in 2019 a Climate Emergency was declared committing the Council to achieving net zero emissions by 2030 with a City-wide goal of 2040.

     

    This Council notes that following the Climate Emergency declaration a draft Climate Action Plan was published outlining how the Council intends to achieve its net zero goals.

     

    This Council believes climate action will not happen unless local communities are at the heart of the decision-making process. Genuine public engagement needs to go deeper than what Westminster has delivered so far, giving more opportunity and time for communities to learn, discuss and make recommendations.

     

    This Council believes the built environment in Westminster has a crucial part to play in addressing the climate crisis. City Plan Policy 36 aims for net zero Carbon on major developments, but most developments in Westminster are classed as minor schemes.

     

    The Council resolves that major policy and spending decisions made by the Council should undergo a ‘Net Zero Test’ to inform the decision-making process and understand their carbon and environmental impact.

     

    The Council resolves to establish a Westminster Climate Assembly that is fully resourced and run by a professional organisation specialising in deliberative engagement and using random stratified sampling to ensure representation according to local demographics. WCC should commit to implementing the solutions proposed wherever possible.

     

    The Council resolves to examine the development of a local climate bond, a crowdfunded financing instrument that would allow Westminster residents to invest in local green projects and enable the Council to diversify its funding sources.

     

    The Council resolves to strengthen its draft Environmental Supplementary Planning Document to include requiring energy assessments for net zero on major schemes (both residential and non-residential); measures to encourage developers to achieve reductions on Part L in minor developments; scrapping policies in favour of onsite parking and setting a presumption in favour of new developments being genuinely car-free; and making it easier for developers to connect new homes to community heating projects.

     

    The Council resolves to set out plans to speed up retrofitting of social housing stock in Westminster, with a particular focus on addressing the 39% of Council homes which currently have single-glazed windows and on transitioning heating and hot water systems to clean sources.
