Limiting carbon emissions is one of the greatest challenges facing our communities.
Divestment from Fossil Fuels
Yes. Investment in renewables must be the way forward.
Walking and Cycling
I would ask officers to look into the practicality of this. I think it’s an ideal but it may not be practical given the overall problems of congestion and parking.
I’m very much in favour of this although it may be that only national legislation can bring this about.
I don’t know enough about this issue. Of course air emissions must be reduced but do we have the technology to do it and maintain business and leisure air travel?
I do support this but I think it will require national government legislation to achieve it. I don’t think the National Planning Policy Framework currently out for consultation encourages it.
