Protecting our parks and cleaning up our air

The air should be safe for local people, especially our children, to breathe.

I will stand up for our parks and open spaces like Sheen Way by opposing over development, and fight for the promised Beddington Farmlands to be open to the public as soon as possible. 

I'll also continue to campaign for better air quality monitoring near the Lib Dem-backed incinerator to ensure you and your family can breathe cleaner air.

Nationally, I will also be a champion for tackling climate change, pressing for measures to clean up our environment.
