Wellbeing and inclusion - The Covid pandemic has shown the increased importance of homes with gardens and/or at least balconies and nearby parks. These must be retained and all new buildings/developments enforced to provide them to ensure the population’s wellbeing
There are already many sporting clubs. Ensure these are maintained/improved to safe & modern standards. Cycling should be encourage, BUT the Cycling movement must not be allowed to push their wishes above the greater majority of the residents and business users of the area.
Creating inclusive employment and business opportunities through new developments must only be on sites that genuinely need the existing building to be replaced. New properties must not be allowed to be more than 4 storeys high. Generally business opportunities should be discouraged.
Pollution, health and safety Resurfacing pavements and roads everywhere to provide safe travel for pedestrians & cyclists, particularly the elderly and less able.
