Local Elections May 2017 4th May 2017
This is an exciting opportunity for councils to look afresh at what they do, and consider how they and partners can improve their area for our social, economic, cultural and environmental well-being, and help shape a sustainable future.
FOE Cymru have devised a list of 10 questions to ask candidates, including -
Will you commit to becoming a fossil free council by 2025?
Are you prepared to utilise funding schemes and borrowing powers to develop a programme to make cold homes energy efficient?
Would you be prepared to work with local take away outlets to ban polystyrene and other non recyclable food containers?
Will you support a requirement for electric car charging points to be available at all suitable public buildings and car parks, and as part of new major developments and redevelopments?
Will you work towards becoming a Bee Friendly Council under the new Welsh Government Bee Friendly scheme?
They also have a list of 10 proposals for a healthy environment that provides a flourishing life for current and future generations.
