Sheffield’s Local & European Elections

During the recent local and European elections, Sheffield FoE contacted all political parties to ascertain their views regarding three key green pledges:

1) A GM free Sheffield
2) Support for better recycling facilities
3) Better public transport, walking and cycling routes.

The number of candidates signing our pledges, by party were:
Green Party (23)
Conservative (5)
Labour (3)
Independent (2)
Lib Dems (1)


















Steve Goodacre sent a letter to the Sheffield Telegraph offering the rest of the Lib Dems another opportunity to tell us where they stand on these three key issues.

Sheffield Friends of the Earth want to work with all political parties to promote policies that protect our environment. We support all local Councillors who are prepared to make a real commitment to green policies
