Commissioner Opposes M4 Relief Road

Sophie Howe, the Future Generations Commissioner, has submitted written evidence to the inquiry beginning on 28 February.  She does not ‘believe that the proposed scheme appropriately applies the principle of taking decisions in a way that benefits future generations.’  Instead she favours investment in public transport, more useful for the 25% of Welsh families who have no access to a car, while also supporting obligations we have to reduce our carbon footprint.
