The Wales We Want

We interrupt our usual programme to mention the "Wales We Want" survey, a Welsh Government initiative. Click on the image above to access it and have your say. What do you want? A more natural environment? Wildlife? More forests? Better public transport? Better cycling provision (and for it to be easier to take bikes on buses and trains)? All planning applications requiring some form of re-greening component? Towns full of independent shops, not generic chain stores and supermarkets? A greener environment generates tourism, health, wellbeing, and has intrinsic value too. Is population the issue politicians avoid mentioning, even though it aggravates every other problem we face in terms of the natural environment? So much to think about!
