Tom has been working with local stakeholders to promote policies at local government level to increase the number of trees across the town and to make cycling an easier and more pleasurable experience. In his professional life Tom has also been working on proposals to establish one of the country’s first local Climate Change Commissions.
Tom says: “It is imperative that we take steps to protect our planet. People should be encouraged to leave their cars at home. Cyclists in Ipswich face challenges and I believe that there are improvements that could be made to be make this a more desirable travel option. I have also held meetings with the County Council about the need to introduce an automatic tree replacement policy.”
