BREAKING: Housebuilding proposed on Green Belt in local plans has quadrupled in the past eight years, with just 1 in 10 considered affordable.
On this trajectory, we risk losing ever more Green Belt while having no impact on the housing crisis.
We agree! Planning can create the healthy, low carbon and beautiful homes and places we all need.
We joined 18 organisations to set out our #VisionForPlanning and urge @MHCLG to listen.
Together we can make this vision a reality for our countryside 💪

If you can, please plant a native hedgerow in your garden or community. So much better than a fence! It could help hedgehogs, bumblebees, blackbirds, frogs, butterflies, robins, bats, hoverflies, wrens... and much more, while soaking up CO2!

A new wildflower area is being proposed for Victoria Park. The design will incorporate a wildflower strip along the bank that runs adjacent to Park Way. We would welcome any feedback with regards to the plans.
New research by @UniofOxford reveals that #walking and #cycling just one day a week can help tackle the climate crisis, highlighting that #activetravel promotion needs to be part of the carbon emission reduction strategy for all cities: https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0959378021000030?dgcid=author
