Clive Lewis MP comments on extra 350 space car parking at County Hall

“Pandemic or no pandemic, larger employers still have the same moral responsibility to do everything they can to counter climate breakdown.

“Car usage is responsible for around a quarter of all carbon emissions across the EU and making it easier to park will induce increased commuting by private vehicle and hasten climate breakdown.

“The Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research at the UEA says of all the counties in mainland UK, Norfolk is the most at-risk from the effects of the climate emergency.

“Why on earth is the local authority responsible for our county putting its own citizens in even more climate jeopardy by enabling increased carbon emissions?”
