Baker (War­ley, Lib Dem) and Jenny Lynn (Park, Lab).

The pro­pos­als in­clude mea­sures to pro­vide sup­port for lo­cal busi­nesses in­volved in ‘green’ in­dus­tries, such as those work­ing on sustainable en­ergy.

There are rec­om­men­da­tions that schools be given sup­port to be­come more ef­fi­cient and that Hal­i­fax’s new Cen­tral Li­brary be built with en­ergy ef­fi­ciency in mind.

The rec­om­men­da­tions also call for Cabi­net to back an ‘In­vest to Save’ ini­tia­tive which will see money be­ing in­vested in green projects in the short­term in or­der to make sav­ings over time.

Dis­grun­tled driv­ers are still be­ing charged to park at evenings in Hal­i­fax weeks af­ter the coun­cil voted to drop the un­pop­u­lar charges.

Coun­cil­lors agreed in Fe­bru­ary to over­haul the park­ing charges in­clud­ing the re­moval of park­ing charges in the town cen­tre af­ter 6pm.

The tar­iffs have still not been changed de­spite the new bud­get com­ing into force on April 1.
