I volunteer with several local environment groups on conservation work parties and am an active member of South Oxfordshire Sustainability. I am standing for election because I think there should be a wider representation of political views on theÂ council.
My key area of interest is planning for a more sustainable future for the environment, our towns and villages and local economy. I want the district councilÂ to be much more active in working with Oxfordshire County Council to reduce air pollution caused by traffic. Everyone has a right to breathe clean air. Â I am also a strong supporter of the “buy local” campaign and want to promote increased production and availability of local food.Â
In South Oxfordshire we have a very high use of energy.Â We need to reduce this by using as many efficiency measures as we can. The Greens hope to achieve a strong economy based on renewable resources and by taking advantage of new Â technologies.
