Priorities for the Climate Change, Environment, and Infrastructure Committee

Purpose of the consultation

The Climate Change, Environment, and Infrastructure Committee (“the Committee”) has been set up by the Senedd to look at policy and legislation, and to hold the Welsh Government to account in specific areas. These areas include climate change policy, the environment, energy, planning, transport, and connectivity.


Purpose of the consultation

The Committee will be setting its priorities for the Sixth Senedd (2021-2026) early in the autumn term. In order to help inform the Committee’s decisions we are gathering views on what you think our main priorities should be.


In particular, the Committee is interested in:

  • hearing what you think about the Minister and Deputy Minister’s priorities for the next 12-18 months. In particular, which of these priorities the Committee should be focusing on over the next year or so; and
  • hearing about any other subject you think should be prioritised over the next 12-18 months. Please set out why you think your suggested subject should be a priority for the Committee.


The closing date for submissions is Friday 10 September 2021.

Providing Written Evidence

The Senedd has two official languages, Welsh and English.


In line with the Senedd’s Official Languages Scheme the Committee requests that documents or written responses to consultations intended for publication or use in Senedd proceedings are submitted bilingually. When documents or written responses are not submitted bilingually, we will publish in the language submitted, stating that it has been received in that language only.


We expect other organisations to implement their own standards or schemes and to comply with their statutory obligation.
