Cabinet Decision: 11th July 2013
Title of Item/Report
Fuel Poverty Partnership
Record of the Decision
Consideration was given to a report on the Fuel Poverty Partnership. A scrutiny review was carried out by the Environment Select Committee on Affordable warmth. The recommendations from the review were considered at Cabinet on 7th February 2013 (minute CAB 128/12 refers). One of the agreed recommendations was that a Fuel Poverty Partnership be formed to bring together all key stakeholders which would, as part of its remit, monitor the progress of the Stockton-on-Tees Affordable Warmth Strategy and delivery plan and report to all relevant groups and committees and that detailed terms of reference be developed for approval by the organisations involved. As the lead strategic and delivery body in securing funding and delivering programmes to tackle fuel poverty in the Borough, Stockton on Tees Borough Council should provide the Chair to this Partnership.

As the Fuel Poverty Partnership was emerging there was a thinking that for consistency and profile that the Chair of the Environment Select Committee should be the Chair of the Fuel Poverty Partnership.

RESOLVED that the Chair of the Environment Select Committee be appointed the Chair of the Fuel Poverty Partnership.
