Comment Not wanting to dampen down enthusiasm but surely if this is an event for the local community the emphasis should be on walking or if people live a little further away catching a bus? Now Heartlands is only doing what other big firework events do – encouraging people from all over the place to visit, but it should be setting an example. Sustainable events mean just that – they should be sustainable and not lead to the generation of traffic!
[If we want to be sustainable we have to have a policy framework that encourages use of local facilities – whether for leisure, retail or whatever, local enough so that people can walk or catch a bus but NOT USE A CAR!
