Lyme Regis council’s new Environment Committee to meet for first time

LYME Regis Town Council’s newly-formed Environment Committee will meet for the first time on Wednesday. 

The formation of the new committee follows the council’s decision two years ago to declare a climate emergency and commit itself to tackling environmental issues with the aim of becoming carbon neutral by 2030.

The meeting will be held at 7pm at Lyme Regis Baptist Church Hall and members of the public are welcome to attend with the opportunity to speak for up to three minutes during the public forum.

The first item on the agenda will be to elect a chairman and vice-chairman from the committee membership of Cllrs Belinda Bawden, John Broom, Kelsey Ellis, Brian Larcombe, Cheryl Reynolds, David Ruffle, David Sarson, Rob Smith, Gill Stammers, Tara Webb and Stan Williams.

Matters to be discussed will include creating cycle lanes and bike racks in Lyme Regis, tackling the problem of Japanese knotweed and a report on progress towards the council’s net zero by 2030 objective.

Members will also be discussing the Queen’s Green Canopy scheme – a nationwide tree-planting initiative created to mark Her Majesty’s Platinum Jubilee in 2022.

The full agenda can be found on the town council’s website
