4 of the 5 candidates (80%) who were asked this question responded as below.

Those candidate(s) which were elected are highlighted.

(Conservative Party)

This sounds like a great idea.

Clive Kenneth SEMMENS
(Green Party)


Ensure that funding is provided, and that the measure is given legal force rather than just being an aspirational soundbite.

(Labour Party)

The Prime Minister's starts with the assumption that new road schemes are the answer. Very often there are better solutions that involve investment in public transport and small changes to infrastructure for walkers and cyclists. Having said that, any new road scheme should start from a consideration of all road users.

Jonathan Peter CHATFIELD
(Liberal Democrat)

Absolutely. Needs to be designed in at the start of all planning applications.
