Sometime (very) soon, there will be an announcment about the Environment Commission, the Manchester-wide body that will sit alongside 6 other commissions on health, transport, public protection etc.
The Environment Commission will (sort of) hold the AGMA Executive’s feet to the fire on Environmental questions,
“To support the AGMA Executive Board in holding to account bodies which impact on the environmental well-being of the city region, to deliver strategies, plans and infrastructure that support their core environmental sustainability objectives, and to ensure that the wider work of the Executive Board reflects its environmental priorities“
as well as being home for the Manchester Climate Change Agency.
