Merton must draw up a tree & biodiversity strategy

Since drawing up a cross-party climate emergency declaration last year, Merton Council has made some progress on climate issues. But there's still much more to do.

That's why Merton Liberal Democrats are calling on the Council to include a Tree & Biodiversity Strategy in their climate action plan. We also identified a possible funding stream to spend on new trees & their maintenance. 

Unfortunately, at November's council meeting, Merton Labour councillors voted against our suggestions. But we'll continue pushing for Merton to do more to tackle the climate emergency.
