At a Parish Assembly on 27th March 2019, Deputy Ward presented Projet 02/2019 ‘Climate Change Emergency’. The Assembly amended the Projet and approved the amended version.
The approved Project reads: “to agree, as proposed by Deputy Ward of St Helier, that the Parish of St Helier should declare a climate change emergency, and aim to be carbon neutral by 2025-2030. That the Constable be requested to draw up a plan to achieve this for presentation to the Parish Assembly by the end of 2019. To endorse the proposition of Deputy Ward and to request the Constable to advise the Parish Deputies and Senators of the decision of the Parish Assembly.”
In addition to the approval of the Projet, the minutes of the Assembly record that the Constable intended to set up a Working Party, whose role will be to draw up a plan for presentation to a Parish Assembly before the end of 2019 and to establish baseline data in respect of the Parish’s carbon footprint.
