Highways England's consultation on changes to the M3 junction 9  closed 19 February. 

WinACC is concerned that the consultation contains no evidence that Highways England has considered the greenhouse gas implications of their proposals when climate change is the greatest challenge we face, and air pollution on the M3 at Winchester is high.

A summary of the final SELFCity workshop on 18 November 2017

In 2016 and 2017 WinACC was part of the SELFCity project, which explored grassroots responses to climate change in England, Germany and the Netherlands. Ian Smith of the University of the West of England emphasised that grassroots organisations working on climate change can be seen as the research and development departments for a better society, which is why it’s important to study them.
