To consider the minutes of the meeting held on 8 October 2019.
42.1 Councillor West stated that minute item 37.3 did not include the full detail of what he believed to be important information he had relayed at the time.
42.2 RESOLVED- That the minutes of the previous meeting be approved and signed as the correct record subject to the amendment below as shown in bold italics:
37.3 Introducing the motion, Councillor West explained its intention was to ensure that the species of trees planted were disease resistant, that they could adapt to the changing conditions relating to climate change and made as big as possible contribution to reducing carbon. The second part of the motion related to a feasibility study of a carbon reduction scheme. Councillor West noted that tree planting on the Brighton Downland may not be appropriate due to the landscape sensitivity of this characteristically open downland. However, it was feasible new trees could be planted beyond the borough in the Weald.
