News that the Mayor had decided to scrap the rainbow cabinet at the end of November came as a shock to Cllr Fi Hance, who has been working on a number of projects over the last eight months in her role as cabinet member for waste and energy.

News that the Mayor had decided to scrap the rainbow cabinet at the end of November came as a shock to Cllr Fi Hance, who has been working on a number of projects over the last eight months in her role as cabinet member for waste and energy.  

This included representing the Mayor at the Bonn international climate summit, where the city’s progress with cutting its own council emissions was recognised. 

Fi said:  “It was an absolute pleasure to work with so many talented and professional council officers on vital areas such as improving Bristols air quality, finding funding to make the desperately needed improvements to our energy infrastructure  along with doubling electric car points.  I've seen some brilliant projects and if anyone wants an in depth description of different methods of waste processing, then just let me know.  I've also met a huge number of dedicated people who are dedicated to making Bristol a cleaner and more sustainable city which again has been a joy.”

 It should be no surprise locally to hear that the Mayor was very positive about the work she has been doing, and cited other pressures to end the rainbow cabinet.
