Havant FOE Newsletter - October 2021

Have Your Say

Hampshire CC are inviting comments on the Local Transport Plan 4 which is the Hampshire Strategy for the next 10 years.


Come to our next meeting. Share your ideas on improving cycling and walking around Havant Borough. Wednesday 13th October 7 pm


Tipner West

Lots of groups, including the Hampshire & Isle of Wight Wildlife Trust are challenging the damaging ‘super-peninsula’ plans at Tipner. This is a vital habitat for endangered wading birds, fish and invertebrates, a precious carbon store and is home to bacteria and algae that help to improve the water quality across Portsmouth’s estuaries and the wider Solent.

This special area already has the highest possible level of protection for wildlife.  Allowing it to be drained, concreted over and built on will undermine wildlife laws and set a dangerous precedent for building over protected habitats across England.


Join the call for climate justice at the COP26 Conference

It’s vital that we get world leaders to agree to effective cuts in greenhouse gas emissions at this conference in November

We should start to make our voices heard in the lead up to COP, whether it’s by spreading the word about the talks or pressuring decision-makers.

The Billion Seed Challenge

Keep up the community spirit after the #GreatBigGreenWeek and plant wildflowers to green up your local area and show that you believe that the decisions made at #COP26 will make a difference. The seeds planted will be a lasting legacy, just like the decisions made by Boris Johnson and other world leaders.
