Divestment from Fossil Fuels
We should be investing in renewable energy
Walking and Cycling
This is an admirable goal but the cost would need to be split fairly between the GM boroughs
This is a great idea, not only to reduce air pollution but also as a road safety issue. We need to encourage walking to school (e.g. Walking Trains). However their would have to be exemptions for vehicles for disabled drives and vulnerable people along with local residents who live within with the "zone".
We need to work towards a more recyclable world and protect our local wildlife such as those found at Burrs Country Park
This may be difficult to achieve but we should at the very least aim for low carbon properties.
