5th Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change IPCC Report

Councillor Lindsay Shurey will note the sea level rize risks to Council’s beach infrastructure.

Text of motion:

“That, not-with-standing our current LEP provisions, Council responds to the recent release of the 5th report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change by adopting a Council policy of carefully re-assessing all Council development applications (and specifically the proposed Coogee Beach amenities block project) against any up to date findings from creditable sources on the risks of rising sea-levels to coastal infrastructure.”

Councillor Murray Matson will call on Prime Minister Tony Abbott to reverse his contentious decision to remove climate change from the agenda of the November G20 meeting in Brisbane.

Text of motion:

“That Council, notes the release of the 5th report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change with its’ relevance to Randwick as an urban coastal community, and as a matter of priority writes to the Prime Minister urging that he accede to European Union requests by reversing his decision to remove climate change from the agenda of the upcoming G20 conference in Brisbane.”
