The Sustainable Communities Act

The Sustainable Communities Act is a radical new democratic approach to empowering citizens and devolution. I write to ask for your urgent help regarding proposals made under the Act.

Unlock Democracy, as part of the Local Works coalition, has identified a ‘Vision for Local Sustainability’: a list of 30 proposals on the shortlist that we regard as vital for protecting and promoting thriving communities. You can view the list here: www.localworks.org/node/4

 

Negotiations between the Government (via Decentralisation Minister, Greg Clark MP) and the Local Government Association on which proposals made under the Act will be implemented have now begun. They are expected to last only a few weeks.

 

ACTION – Please help urgently
 
May I ask that, given the above, you please write to, or email, Decentralisation Minister, Greg Clark MP, urging him to agree to implement the Vision for Local Sustainability?
 
A sample letter/email to Mr Clark is below to help make this a very quick and simple action for you. Please note Mr Clark’s address is: Greg Clark MP, House of Commons, London, SW1A 0AA. His email is: gregclarkmp@parliament.uk
 
Thank you.
 
Yours sincerely,
 
Steve Shaw
