#Manchester Scrutiny Committees, #climate and #elephantsintheroom

  4. Ged says:

    With some 150,000 residents in Manchester claiming benefits for health related conditions, the majority through respiratory problems, mobility issues and depression, when is our local authority going to raise the profile of non fossil fuel based transportation and invest in clear, clean and safe access on all major trunk routes into the city.
    Cyclist have been discriminated against by planners for too long, when are the planners going to stop putting lives at risk?
