The Green Party is a party of social and environmental justice, which supports a radical transformation of society for the benefit of all, and for the planet as a whole. We understand that the threats to economic, social and environmental wellbeing are part of the same problem, and recognise that solving one of these crises cannot be achieved without solving the others. Our key upcoming local campaigns will be looking at ways to improve air quality and actions to take against the Option C Thames crossing. The emissions measured in urban areas like ours are too high and are damaging the health of us and our families – action needs to be taken now. This would be made much worse with the extra lorry traffic brought by another Thames crossing. We need cleaner more sustainable travel solutions that put people’s health and the environment first. Kent has some of the highest pollution levels in the country and the increase in traffic from another crossing will only make things worse.
