Protecting our Environment for Now and Our Future
We understand how important our natural environment is and we always call out for its protection. Being high on the list of London Boroughs in terms of natural green space, our wonderful local parks and public spaces are under constant threat from over-development.
The natural environment should be a key concern for all of us, all of the time, not just at election time.
Access to and the quality of our natural environment is important for our physical and mental health, as well as biodiversity and wildlife.
We proudly support the Campaign for Rural England's (CPRE) local election campaign and have gone as far as to include it within our manifesto - A Better Deal for Havering
There is a high demand for new local, genuinely affordable, housing, and we call upon the Council and developers to ensure that wherever possible, new developments make use of current brownfield sites before considering the permanent conversion of more of our beautiful green spaces in to concrete structures.
