Divestment from Fossil Fuels
I believe we need urgently to move away from fossil fuels and invest in increased renewable greener energy. I would like to see Bolton council look into a local energy model which could boost our economy and provide cheaper and greener energy at same time.
Walking and Cycling
Whilst I agree we need to tackle air pollution and recognise parking outside our schools is often a huge problem I would need to learn more about the issue and feasibility of bringing in the exclusion zones locally. I agree with it in principle.
This is something I feel councils need to tackle immediately, it's wasteful, harmful and creates a negative effect on our environment in terms of litter too. I am part of Litter Pickers of North Bolton and the amount of plastic on our streets is a disgrace. We need to support the shops and initiatives locally who encourage bring your own containers etc and reduce packaging to bare minimum.
