Eleanor Field criticises lack of action on poor air quality

At the Widcombe hustings last night, the Green Party’s Eleanor Field criticised Ben Howlett’s lack of action on the poor air pollution levels in Bath and comments previously made on social media about it.

Afterwards Eleanor said, “Bath has been gripped by a pollution crisis which has forced dirty air into our cities and stay there. I’m glad Ben recognises this, but his solutions of more road building and a destructive Park and Ride on Eastern Bath are not what we need. These are 20th-century solutions for a modern day problem.”

The Green Party in Bath has campaigned for a Clean Air Zone. Eleanor added, “This plan will ensure that those treating Bath as a through road will reimburse those in Bath. We can use these raised funds to properly support Bath and build a green transport system.”
