Implementation of Council’s Climate Change Strategy begins

Here are some jewels from the London Borough of Waltham Forest’s thrilling Climate Change Strategy policy document:

The Council recognises that traffic growth and congestion are problems on social, economic and environmental levels, and is committed to limiting further growth and encouraging a shift from private car use to increased use of public transport and walking or cycling.

In the field of transport, a reduction in the total amount of journeys made by car is a big factor with journeys being made by alternative modes such as public transport, walking and cycling or even not being made at all.

The Council will continue to work to get people from transport by private car to more sustainable transport.
