A Green New Deal for Cambridge 2022

There are many things to celebrate about Cambridge as a place to live, but also many injustices. The rapid economic growth experienced in some areas has left many people behind, with more and more  struggling to heat their homes and feed their families. The Greater Cambridge Planning Authority is currently committed to building thousands of new homes, yet past development has failed to address the housing affordability crisis or to lessen the huge inequality in the city. Too many housing developments (although not all) are soulless, lack community facilities, add to Cambridge’s traffic problem and chip away at our remaining green space. We need to learn from past mistakes and successes so we can work towards a better future. 

Here is our plan to help everyone in Cambridge thrive.
