As a party, we are committed to achieving net zero by 2050. While that seems like an incredibly challenging goal, there are actions that can be taken at the city level.
Cambridge has vast green spaces such as the Botanical Gardens, Granchester Meadows, Paradise Nature Reserve, Jesus Green and Lammas Land. As Conservatives, we believe that these vital spaces like these should be protected as they constitute a part of our natural heritage. We also believe more can be done to improve biodiversity by the Council in response to this, given that a decline in UK species of plants, animals and birds has been reported in the 2019 State of the Nature Report.
Although we oppose the congestion charge, we recognise that Cambridge residents and workers need access to sustainable transport choices that work for them. We advocate the opening of Cambridge South station to build public transport capacity for those based near Addenbrookes and Trumpington. Bus routes coming into Cambridge from feeder towns and villages should be more efficient and delay-free if people are to choose them as a viable alternative.
