#ClimateEmergency planning must apply to every New Local Plan

BREAKING READING NEW LOCAL PLAN

#WhereIsYourPlan #TelltheTruth #ActNow #PeoplesAssembly

Background
At the very time of writing this, we are aware of 245 Local Authorities in England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland that have declared a Climate Emergency (149 have set a target of 2030 or earlier). #Peoplesdemands can’t be ignored. It’s a cross party movement, with political control as follows: 80 No Overall Control • 75 Labour • 60 Conservative • 22 Lib Dem • 4 Independent • 1 Plaid Cymru. (SNP are minority lead on some of the NOC Councils). 

Our #cities and towns are the main solution to respond to the #climatecrises, the key for combating climate change. Many cities have committed to meeting the #ParisAgreement goals (60% of UK Councils have in 2019 declared a Climate Emergency). But are those targets translating to action on the ground? The need for an urban climate emergency toolkit is clear. London, Manchester City and Leeds are on a quest to achieve 100% carbon-free electricity not later than #NetZero 2038 and what other cities can learn from this experience.

#ClimateEmergency planning must apply to every New Local Plan

The adoption of Reading’s UNSUSTAINABLE  Local Plan will be discussed at a meeting of Council on 4th November. Once adopted, it will replace all existing development plans (the Core Strategy, Reading Central Area Action Plan and Sites and Detailed Policies Document) as the main consideration in deciding planning applications within Reading.

As it is, the inspector’s conclusions ASSESSED AGAINST NATIONAL PLANNING POLICY FRAMEWORK 2012 are that, subject to a number of ‘main’ modifications, the Local Plan is sound and legally compliant, and can proceed to adoption.
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


– Climate Change Centre Reading (CCTC) urge a meeting of the Reading Borough Council’s Strategic Environment Planning and Transport Committee (SEPT) this month to agree the final “climate emergency” phase of New Local Plan consultation, BEFORE the document is re-submitted to the Secretary of State, for final examination by independent inspector to determine whether it is ‘sound’ and legally compliant and therefore can be adopted.

The revised National Planning Policy Framework (NPPF) published in 2018 contains four headline implications for planning for climate change, which are as follows:

  • The revised #NPPF retains the key link between planning policy and the provisions of the Climate Change Act 2008. This means all local plans must set a carbon dioxide emissions reduction target and lay out clear ways of measuring progress on carbon dioxide emissions reduction
  • Guidance for viability testing has been re-balanced, creating more opportunity for policy that might address climate change
  • There is still real confusion about the scope of planning authorities to set ambitious targets beyond the Building Regulations on energy efficiency
  • There is nothing to stop local plans adopting requirements for on-site renewable energy generation

“ – This is the final phase of public consultation on what is a key planning document which will play a major role in helping to shape Reading over the next 20 year period (2016-2036).”

Nobel Peace Prize 2019 #Greataday

Hi Earth Crisis Organiser – #Greataday🏅in #Denver @paulmromer #Nobelprize
2019 #Nobelpeaceprize no.100 goes to #PippiLongstocking #FridaysforFuture
CONGRATS to the #Equity Nobel Prize #SDG16


This #fff Friday 11 October #climatestrikes is again going global. Students from #USA to #Russia, from Spain to Poland, from Uganda to Japan, are going on strike: for the climate, and for our future.
What first started as a one-person protest by a #Sweden teenager #GretaThunberg, has now gathered momentum and spread all across the world. Already over 2000 events are planned in over 100 countries!


If the striking kids inspire you and you want to help, but aren’t sure how, take a look: here are 5 meaningful ways in which you can support the school climate strikes.
First thing you can do: spread the word! Let your friends know about the school strikes to inspire and mobilise others:
The moral authority of these striking kids has the potential to transform the #climateconsequences. They know that their future is on the line, and are acting like it. As adults, we can help: by getting their message to reach far and wide, by offering practical support with logistics, or joining the strikes as allies.
Are you already supporting the school strikes, or planning to? Share with us what you’re doing, send photos or videos – together we’re going to inspire others.
But most importantly: don’t let the young people do all the work! The #climatecrisis needs every single one of us to take action and fight for a #fossilfree future – that’s why together, we’re building a global grassroots #climatemovement.
The most meaningful way to support the school strikes is to listen, and respond, to their urgent call to action on #climatechange. Are you ready? Option number 5 might be just the thing for you.


In #solidarity with students all over the world.

ARREST WARRANT #ClimateCriminal

This is embarrassing, I’m issuing an arrest warrant for Tony Page and Louise Gibbon for unlawfully submitting Reading’s New Local Plan to proceed to adoption with adopted main modifications.

“Over 200 towns and cities in the UK have in 2019 declared #climateemergency!

Climate Change Centre Reading – CCCRdg just had it confirmed, that #Reading’s New Local Plan #NLP (2016-2036) final modifications are based on #NPPF2012 not #NPPF2018 #NPPF2019!!!

Final report over Reading New Local Plan 2017-36 / Adopted Main Modifications;

http://www.reading.gov.uk/media/10392/Final-Inspectors-Report-24092019/pdf/Final_Inspectors_Report_24092019.pdf

Why the hell is this the case?? It’s a complete scam. After years of consultations on #climatechange. Proposals, advice and objections identifying the most important neighbourhood planning and policy issues facing our society which have been ignored.

All planning climate criminals in the SEPT committee #RBC should be h-d. I’m sorry for the wording, but that is exactly how I feel.

I refuse to believe team Tony Page and partner in crime Louise Gibbon are that stupid, idiots to go against #science.

I expect a written apology to the residents of Reading, on how to completely revamp the Reading New Local Plan to be fit for future.

It’s totally unbelievable that the SEPT committee (RBC) are trying to get away with the New Local Plan proceed to adoption in accordance with a pre-climate framework and 5 years old sustainability appraisals (these are being consulted on now).

Can someone please explain how this can happen in 2019. Can anyone with legal skills stop this coupe at this very final stage.

What is needed before is an honest re-assessed New Local Plan in accordance with an up-to-date planning framework and the new sustainability appraisals assessments, BEFORE it proceed to adoption!

Further on, four requirements of the New Local Plan must be synergised with;

  • – The RBC internal climate emergency toolkit
  • – The Sustainable Development Goals and Agenda 2030
  • – The global New Urban Agenda, SDG 11

Finally the Local Plan must be risk assessed to prove disaster resilience.

What is sustainability? It is changing all the time.

The global SDGs are at the moment the leading scheme for sustainability.
To a greener, leaner and healthier community.

Delivering the Goals – https://tvb-climatechallenge.org.uk/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/British-Concerns-Hidden-by-the-UK-Brexit-negotiations.pdf

Our questions to Wokingham Borough Council (WBC) is,  Where are WBC on addressing the SDGs and rolling out it’s 169 targets in a public campaign in Wokingham and greater Berkshire to all its local residents? How will civil society support the enhanced implementation plan of ‘the Goals‘ in their local community?

The commitment to which the Government signed up in September 2015, the UK Government is firmly committed to delivering the Goals. Greener Wokingham could take a lead on this.

Earth to set global #DRR standard for Climate Disaster Governance by showing #ClimateAmbition leadership and beyond. Emphasis on relentless #ClimateDisaster, inaction will have unimaginable costs.

#Kuwait high temperature up to 63 c outdoors and 52.2 c in the shade.
Recently, Kuwait experienced heatwave high temperature up to 63 c outdoors and 52.2 c in which the umbrella came out to remind the public, especially the children and elderly, avoid coming out in the informing and there are 1 fatalities from heatstroke from the impact of hot weather.
