Climate Change is the greatest challenge of our time. While many councils across the country are declaring climate emergencies and making plans to decarbonise over the next decade, Brentwood as usual is burying its head in the sand.

A Green councillor or two in the chamber would ensure that issues that Brentwood Borough Council chooses to ignore would be raised. From air pollution levels around the town centre to the use of dangerous herbicides and pesticides on our parks and green spaces. Brentwood Council is failing its residents.

Our roads in and around the town are frequently clogged with traffic. Public transport is inadequate so there’s no encouragement to leave the car at home. Pedestrians and cyclists are given scant regard. In our villages speeding traffic is ignored, leaving the elderly and children especially at risk.

Meanwhile the cronies of the Brentwood Conservatives sitting in County Hall plan have plans to close Shenfield and Ingatestone libraries . They plan to asset strip our communities.

Brentwood Town Centre, especially the High Street, shows sign of neglect and decay. Each month another shop seems to close. Yet with our council complacency rules.

Green Party councillors would defend our green space, encourage small independent businesses and focus on improving the quality of life for all residents across the borough.

It’s time for radical change. On May 2nd, in Ingatestone, Fryerning and Mountnessing, Brentwood North, Brentwood West and Warley wards – Vote Green.
