Question Yes/No Additional Comments
Do you support an ambitious recycling plan for council collected waste that will allow the incinerator to close by 2034?  No We should stop incinerating our waste immediately! It is burning recyclable and compostible waste and is one of the biggest producers of climate-damaging CO2 in the city.
Do you support making sure climate change is at the heart of council decisions and spending, prioritising the implementation of the Route to Zero plan?  Yes
Would you be willing to take a carbon literacy course to supplement your understanding of urgent measures the council could take to reduce CO2 emissions? Yes
Do you support the implementation of the Birmingham Transport Plan that prioritises reliable and well coordinated public transport and increased facilities for active travel? Yes
Will you support the council to be more ambitious in improving energy efficiency in council buildings and houses by having larger scale projects instead of smaller trials? Yes This should be one of the councils urgent priorities. Reducing domestic energy use will help address the cost-of-living crisis as well as supporting the progress to zero-carbon.
Do you commit to engagement with your constituents by holding regular and frequent public ward meetings? Yes Perry Common ward has had none at all for the last couple of years and the ward plan is devoid of meaningful content. Councillors are elected to represent their ward and can only do that through regular and genuine consultation and communication with residents.
