Better protection for the environment

We will plant more trees on our land to remove carbon from the atmosphere. We will adopt a policy where we decarbonise finance and investment and where we require the companies we work with to have robust environmental policies.

A Liberal Democrat council will take more effective action against those who would spoil oursurroundings with fly-tipping and dog fouling. We will also tackle air pollution with moreeffective monitoring and regular reporting. We will promote walking and cycling, ensuring thatnew development takes into account joining up local infrastructure.

To end the confusion about what can be recycled and to reduce the volume of waste generated in Huntingdonshire, we will improve recycling rates by focusing on a ‘circular economy’ of waste reduction, reuse, and recycling.
