The Environmental Affairs currently has 14 members
on the committee and it meets every 6 weeks with the aim to ensure the council
plays its full role in promoting the cleanliness and safety of the
town and its open spaces.
The Committee's objectives are:
- Respond to issues with regard to the community safety, recreational or environmental issues that have an impact on the built environment or the open spaces of the town.
- Develop the council’s approach to community safety and environmental issues.
- Develop the council’s environmental and economic development policies including promotion of the town as a premier tourism destination.
- Implement street decorations including Christmas lights.
The Environmental Affairs Committee supported the recent successful application to name Monmouth as a Bee Town as part of the Welsh Assembly initiative. If you would like further information about this initiative, please contact the Lead Councillor, Cllr Anthea Dewhurst.
