Adoption of Peak District Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment (EF) pdf icon PDF 233 KB

    Minutes:

    The Head of Strategy and Performance introduced the report which requested Members to adopt the Peak District Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment (CCVA).  It was noted that if adopted the CCVA would be used as part of the evidence base for the Authority’s policies and strategies. 

     

    Prof Janet Haddock-Fraser, Chair of the Member led Climate Change Task Group, stated that the Task Group had been involved in producing the CCVA and moved the recommendation.

     

    Members welcomed the report and the CCVA as an important achievement which needed to be shared with partners and stakeholders; the motion was seconded.  It was noted that the next steps were to refresh the presentation of the CCVA document to enable it to be shared more easily and to raise its profile both internally and externally.  Officers will also ensure that the CCVA fits into the next steps for policies and strategies eg the Corporate Strategy, the National Park Management Plan and the Local Plan.

     

    In response to Members’ queries it was noted that it was understood this was the first such CCVA to be produced by a National Park Authority with regard to special qualities and the CCVA would be shared with the National Parks England Climate Change Group.

     

    The motion for the recommendation as set out in the report was voted on and carried.

     

    RESOLVED:

     

    1.    To adopt the Peak District Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment provided via web link at Appendix 1 of the report.

     

    2.    That the Peak District Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment becomes part of our evidence base for the National Park Management Plan, Corporate Strategy, Local Plan, Landscape Strategy and all our work programmes.

     

    3.    That any changes needed to the Peak District Climate Change Vulnerability Assessment, as a result of the Programmes and Resources meeting, are delegated to the Chief Executive.
