Our Priorities For Wealden
Protecting Wealden’s natural environment
Wealden’s forests, rivers, coast and farmland are its crown jewels and we must act as good custodians to look after it for now and for future generations.
Sustainable transport and safer roads
Develop an integrated approach to road planning, public transport and active travel that encourages people to exercise and reduces the impact of cars and other road traffic.
Joined-up planning and housing policies
Need not greed: Wealden faces a crisis of affordability, not a shortage of housing, we can protect Wealden’s countryside and communities while providing equitable housing.
Building a sustainable ‘wellbeing economy'
We can’t carry on with “business as usual”. It's time to stop focusing on unsustainable endless growth, and instead prioritise wellbeing, jobs, and reducing carbon emissions & resource use.
