Current Calls for action

 

Environmental Targets consultationEnvironmental Targets Consultation

The Department for Environment, Food, and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) have launched an Environmental Targets Consultation.

The purpose of this consultation is to seek feedback on the proposed targets for a variety of environmental targets, including proposals on Biodiversity on land and in the sea, Water quality and availability, Resource efficiency and waste reduction, and Air quality.

The consultation deadline has now been extended to 27th June 2022, and is another opportunity to have our say, especially with the topic of air quality targets being so relevant to LTC.  The new targets will be enshrined in UK law by the end of Oct 2022.

Find out more on why it is important to have your say, read our response, and get details on how to take part here.

 


Help record trees

The Woodland Trust is also asking us, the public, to help spot and report ancient, veteran, and notable trees. Obviously they can only know about and try to protect these trees if they know where they are, so please do check on their website if you know of an old tree and see if it has been recorded, and if not please add the details to help build their database HERE.

Calling all photographers, videographers and budding photographers/videographers

One of the main things you can do as a supporter of the campaign is to help spread the word!  It is vital that as many people know exactly what is going on, so that as many people as possible can have their say regarding the proposed Lower Thames Crossing!

Please follow Government guidelines during COVID-19. With many of us using virtual meetings and online chat more, maybe you can help spread the word to others virtually!
