"Green Cornwall" - which ending do we get?
When Steve Cirell left Cornwall Council at the end of his year-long secondment as director of the Green Cornwall project, all sorts of initiatives were on the launch pad - revision of planning rules to encourage more wind turbines, solar energy farms; we were even told to believe battery-powered cars could soon be whizzing up and down the A30. When Steve joined the council in July 2009 he penned this article for LocalGov.co.uk. If "Green Cornwall" were a movie, does it end up dead - or does it emerge battered, betrayed but ultimately stronger? Is it possible the "Sliding Doors" alternative endings analogy that Steve wrote about is even more pertinent than he might have imagined?
