Looking after the environment in Broxtowe


The Liberal Democrats are committed to the environment. Our plan for Broxtowe includes a number of ambitious environmental policies aimed at preserving the world we live in for future generations.

The Liberal Democrats are committed to the environment. Our plan for Broxtowe includes a number of ambitious environmental policies aimed at preserving the world we live in for future generations.

Nationally, the Liberal Democrats are committed to seeing 1,000,000 new trees planted. At a local level, we have been engaged in tree planting for a many years. In our 2015 manifesto, we committed to planting 100,000 trees in Broxtowe. Obviously, we're a few years on now, but we still want to see many new trees being planted.

We're also committed to protecting our local greenbelt. In the past, we had to make the difficult decision of releasing a small amount of greenbelt land for development. But this should have allowed us to protect other green belt areas - something we are committed to doing and would have been unable to do without first releasing some of the former green belt.

We are proud of the quality of parks in Broxtowe. Two parks have green flag status, the highest award possible, and the council have recently adopted new standards for all our parks to raise the quality even further. We will maintain the standards of our parks but also raise them where possible. We would like to see a third park with green flag status in the near future.
