LATEST: Friday 17 July 2020
Cllr Richard Livingstone, the Cabinet Member whose portfolio covers Environment, Transport and the Climate Emergency, was asked at the Walworth Society meeting to review the Cemeteries Strategy and to rethink plans to cut down trees in the light of the climate emergency,
Councillor LIvingstone replied that Southwark was "already thinking that they needed to reconsider this policy and were open to looking at this issue again."
This would be a good opportunity to contact Councillor Livingstone to follow up this opening. Please email him at [email protected]
