Report from Zone 9 Cycling Group – 7th July 2020

Poor air quality and exposure to high levels of air pollution can cause a range of adverse health effects – cancer, lung disease and breathing difficulties such as asthma. Traffic caused by cars and other vehicles are a key contributor to poor air quality. Driving less and reducing cars on the roads is good for our planet, our health and our finances.

Save our streams

You will probably have already heard that our local chalk streams in the Chilterns, such as the River Chess, River Misbourne, River Gade etc are suffering from low flows. This is particularly noticeable in their upper reaches where many, including our own River Chess, even after the relatively wet period we have had in October and November 2019, are still totally devoid of their natural groundwater fed flows.

Letter to candidates and councillors

We are encouraging Chesham residents to write to local candidates in forthcoming elections to press them on their commitment to address climate and ecological change locally. This is to encourage maximising efforts for council activities to be carbon neutral as soon as possible, and to support Chesham becoming carbon neutral as soon as possible. Initiatives to tackle carbon reduction and ecological enhancement in Chesham through engagement and information sharing with local residentser.
