QUESTIONS, REPRESENTATIONS AND STATEMENTS OF CASE

The Monitoring Officer to report on any questions, representations and statements of case received in accordance with Council procedures.

 

The following question has been received from Nicola Royale:

We (Climate Action Leicester and Leicestershire) fully support the new Beaumont Leys Park and Ride as, along with other Park and Ride sites, it has the potential to reduce car use within the city and improve connectivity for households without a car. We also support developments that include a provision for renewable energy generation where ever possible. So our question is: will the new Beaumont Leys Park and Ride site include installation of solar panels for renewable energy generation?
