Lib Dems champion a Climate Change Fund
Lib Dems at a meeting of the Environment Committee on 31st October suggested that the council should follow others who have set up Climate Change Funds. In these cases money is set aside to pay for renewable energy sources - in public buildings for example - and to give grants to homeowners who want to go "green".
Cllr Nigel Pavey (Stamford Ward) told the Committee "I really think we should have something under our Promoting Sustainability & Tackling Issues of Climate Change heading which is more than just recycling." There was support from all parties on the issue.
