We have committed to a call by Save Lea Marshes’ for candidates to safeguard the marshes if elected. This is the statement:
“IF ELECTED WE PLEDGE TO PROTECT GREEN SPACES IN WALTHAM FOREST. WE WILL WORK TO PROMOTE BIODIVERSITY, TO ERADICATE THE USE OF PESTICIDES WITHIN THE BOROUGH AND ENSURE THAT ALL RESIDENTS HAVE ACCESS TO WILD GREEN SPACES CLOSE TO HOME.
Green spaces are not a luxury, affordable only during the good times, but fundamental to our individual and collective health and well being. Our environment IS our community.”
