Eamonn Ward is the Green Party candidate for Darnall Ward in the local elections on May 5th 2022
I have taken action to highlight and improve the dangerous air quality issues in this ward, focusing on the Tinsley area close to the M1 and the clear impact it has on public health. I initiated and led the Sheffield Green Party “Let Sheffield Breathe” air pollution campaign. I have opposed expansion of Meadowhall and other big developments in that area due to the air pollution impacts and the failure to provide and fund viable walking and cycling options
to limit car use.
I aim to join a growing group of Green councillors making local action to address the climate
emergency their priority. Greens will continue to campaign for better public transport and
safer cycling and walking options so people can choose to leave their cars at home, reducing
congestion for all road users while improving dangerous air pollution and road safety.
