The Green Travel Challenge – A Local Conversation

You are warmly invited to The Green Travel Challenge – A Local Conversation in the early evening of Wednesday 13 October 2021.

 

The event will be held on Zoom and the formal session will run from 18.30-20.00 but you can join from 18.15 onwards

 

You can book via Eventbrite here: https://www.eventbrite.com/e/the-green-travel-challenge-a-local-conversation-tickets-183559731097   

 

In both Glossopdale and Longdendale, traffic and its associated environmental degradation are key concerns for both visitors and residents. Our interviews with local people and visitors about their travel experiences in the locality gave us greater insight into the situation. In that context CPRE, with MTRU Transport Planning consultant Keith Buchan, has been developing measures that would address the intolerable traffic conditions and help address climate change.

Join us to discuss and inform our proposals – weight restriction for through-traffic of lorries, slower speeds, making space for walking and cycling, reshaping the bus services, affordable EV car and bike share/hire schemes and much more – at this interactive workshop.

 

This event is hosted by CPRE Peak District and South Yorkshire.

 

We hope to see you there! Please do send the invite to other people you think might be interested.

 

Best wishes

Anne

WASTE RECYCLING

High Peak goes to W.A.R on fly-tipping
Illegally dumped rubbish blights our environment and costs local taxpayer tens of thousands of pounds to investigate and clear up – so the Borough Council and its waste partners at AES are going to W.A.R on fly-tipping in the High Peak.

Fly-tipping cost High Peak taxpayers over £42,000 last year. This is money which could be invested in other areas of the community if people disposed of their waste correctly.

Offenders who are caught face prosecution and risk a significant fine of up to £50,000 or imprisonment. You can still be prosecuted if your waste is found fly-tipped, even if you didn’t dispose of it yourself.

Councillor Jean Todd, Executive Councillor for Climate Change, Environment and Community Safety, said: “Fly-tipping is a very serious issue which puts our staff, the public and our environment at risk.

“The fine for offenders found guilty of fly-tipping has recently been increased and our staff are always on the lookout for those responsible.

“What people may not know is that you can also be prosecuted if your waste ends up being fly-tipped. It’s easy to avoid that by following some simple steps, which we’ve summarised in our W.A.R campaign, and I would strongly urge anyone paying for someone to dispose of waste to follow these steps.”

Individuals or companies charging to remove waste must have a licence to do so. Residents can avoid scams and help keep the local environment clean by joining the W.A.R on fly-tipping and checking the following when booking an extra waste collection:

W: Waste Carrier license – do they have one?
A: Are they going to dispose of your waste legally, and can they provide evidence?
R: Receipt – always get a receipt for your transaction

You can check carrier licences online at www.environment.data.gov.uk/public-register/view/search-waste-carriers-brokers<http://www.environment.data.gov.uk/public-register/view/search-waste-carriers-brokers>

Councillor Todd added: “We at the Council and AES share the anger and frustration residents feel when fly-tipping incidents occur and I want to reassure people that we are working hard to reduce it.

“Everyone can help us with that by remembering W.A.R and disposing of waste correctly. By working together in this way, we’ll hopefully see a reduction in the amount of fly-tipping that scars our environment.”

If you witness an act of fly-tipping you can call the police on 999 and report it as an environmental crime in progress.
