Lucy's Plan to tackle the climate crisis

The world is experiencing a climate emergency. We cannot ignore this huge problem anymore. Experts expect South West England will be up to 2 degrees warmer in just 30 years. That might not sound like much, but it will mean risks to our residents from air pollution, from flooding, and to our wildlife.

As one of the movers of the Climate Emergency motion to get action in Derby, Lucy has played a role in shaping a plan for Derby to protect our environment. Lucy was previously a walking and cycling champion, she continues to work closely with residents and community groups to boost more environmentally friendly transport in our area.

South Derbyshire needs an MP with an ambitious plan to accelerate South Derbyshire's net-zero future - who doesn't support fracking, or dumping sewage in the Trent.

Without a clear pathway to net-zero by 2030 we won't be able to build a world our children deserve to grow up in. I believe we can get there, with an inclusive plan that brings together business and communities to create a sustainable future for our town.
