I agree with the principle of biodiversity net gain in future developments, investment in green infrastructure, aswell as reducing carbon emissions in transport
Divestment from Fossil Fuels
Walking and Cycling
When there is so much suffering from severe cuts in council budgets, i don't think it is fair to invest so much. Although i do agree there is much room for improvement in infrastructure.
There are many congestion issues around peak school run times, which cause safety issues as well as pollution, i think families need to be educated better about the dangers of pollution and the benefits of that short walk to school, instead of driving. I think people should change habits through choice, not through enforcement.
I also think GM should support the UK initiative converting waste plastics into road surfaces, to reduce the costs of road maintenance and reduce waste.
