MOTION - LOCAL ELECTRICITY BILL

 

 

(a) LOCAL ELECTRICITY BILL - Councillor David Vasmer

 

That Shrewsbury Town Council

(i)    acknowledges the efforts that this council has made to tackle climate emergency;

 

(ii)   recognises that councils can play a central role in creating sustainable communities, particularly through the provision of locally generated

       renewable electricity;

 

(iii)   further recognises

 

  • that very large financial setup and running costs involved in selling locally generated renewable electricity to local customers result in it being impossible for local renewable electricity generators to do so,
  • that making these financial costs proportionate to the scale of a renewable electricity supplier’s operation would create significant opportunities for councils to be providers of locally generated renewable electricity directly to local people, businesses and organisations, and
  • that revenues received by councils that became local renewable electricity providers could be used to help fund local greenhouse gas emissions reduction measures and to help improve local services and facilities;

(iv)    accordingly resolves to support the Local Electricity Bill, currently supported by a cross-party group of 115 MPs, and which, if made law,

         would make the setup and running costs of selling renewable electricity to local customers proportionate by establishing a Right to Local Supply;

         and

(v)    further resolves to

  • inform the local media of this decision,
  • write to local MPs, asking them to support the Bill, and
  • write to the organisers of the campaign for the Bill, Power for People, (at 8 Delancey Passage, Camden, London NW1 7NN or info@powerforpeole.org.uk) expressing its support.
  •  
(b) MOUNT HOUSE - Councillor Jane Mackenzie
 
That Shrewsbury Town Council notes with interest recent newspaper articles about the purchase of Mount House by Mr Marchant. Given the significant local, national and international interest this building attracts in terms of promotion of the Darwin connections to Shrewsbury and associated tourism potential, the Town Council invites Mr Marchant to a future meeting of Council to present his ideas for use of the building, his business model in supporting academia and education and the potential for retaining this building as a visitor attraction.
