Thanks to everyone who came along to the public meeting on 13th October "The Big Green Pow Wow".
Please comment below this blog post, like it, share it or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org We are also responding to the Air Quality Action Plan.
Transport Strategy generally:
We strongly support the council’s objective to create and sustain “liveable neighbourhoods,” with initiatives ranging from tree planting and safe play streets to safe pedestrian routes, cycle and car share schemes and new areas for communal food growing. But these ideas need coordinating and discussing with residents. We want to see a borough wide Liveable Streets Forum and the council to encourage discussion on liveable street improvements in Ward Forums so people can take ownership of street greening.
We strongly support increasing street tree cover – but this should be in the context of the Biodiversity Action Plan.
We support increasing community street planting, but we think a more pro-active approach is needed and that biodiversity is a better objective than food growing.
We support a Hackney-wide Freight Action Plan.
We want to see targets for more car-sharing bays and electric car charging points.
UPDATE our final submission is here Transport Strategy - comments from Sustainable Hackney - Final.pdf
