Consider the long term implications for climate change, and reconsider the felling of a hundred trees in Markeaton Park.
Consider the chaos which will be caused in neighbouring areas during the 4 years of construction, and the implications for local air quality.
Why is this important?
Central Government and Derby city council have both declared climate emergencies. It is known that traffic volumes must be reduced drastically, and if this achieved, additional road capacity will be unnecessary.
Trees are important because they take carbon dioxide out of the air, and play a role in removing other pollutants produced by vehicles. Mature trees cannot easily be replaced.
Local people will experience major congestion problems accompanied by high levels of air pollution.
How it will be delivered
We will hand them in at a hearing, and aim to trigger a debate at the City Council.
