Preparations for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee Celebrations

Report of the Executive Director for Economy, Environment, and Culture (Copy Attached).

 

Decision:

RESOLVED; That Committee agrees:

 

1. To note the national plans for The Queen’s Jubilee celebrations and note the work that the council has done so far in preparing for lighting the Hove Beacon;

2. That an update paper be brought back to TECC in early 2022, as currently events are still in the early stages of planning; and

3. That officers should explore opportunities to support other elements of Jubilee celebrations, such as tree-planting and support for street parties/community events and report back with suggestions for a Jubilee programme as part of the update paper.

Minutes:

47.1 Giles Rossington introduced the report starting on page 151 of the Agenda.

 

47.2 Councillor Simson was informed that multiple beacons would be looked at in terms of the celebrations.

 

47.3 Stephanie Prior was informed that closing streets for parties could also encourage having less cars on the road for the day to help with carbon reductions.

 

47.4 Councillor Grimshaw was informed that:

 

·       The Queen’s Canopy initiative would be a good idea to plant more trees in the city’s parks and streets. The ETS Committee would also be looking at a program to plant trees in the correct spaces.

·       If there is any budget left over from the VE Celebrations this can be used for the Jubilee Celebrations.

·       There are more beacons to consider but the emphasis is on the Hove beacon, and that more details will be included in the next report.

 

47.5 Councillor Childs was informed that there are plans to get in touch with neighbouring authorities to get a royal navy ship to dock in Brighton for the day.
