An environmentally friendly borough
We want to ensure that the borough is healthy and sustainable for future generations. We will continue work to tackle poor air quality and to protect the environment for example by encouraging people to switch to walking or cycling for shorter journeys which can also have health benefits. We will explore ways to make the borough cleaner and more energy efficient through promoting technology such as solar energy and lower emission vehicles.
