A Buckingham town councillor was one of the speakers at the Conservative Party's Spring Conference last week in Blackpool.

Warren Whyte, who is also a Buckingham ward councillor on the unitary Buckinghamshire Council, spoke about the need for greener transport, the benefits of cleaner air, reducing reliance on fossil fuels and the huge potential for the country’s economy from developing new technologies and solutions to reduce the impact of transport on the environment.

Cllr Whyte said "Not only can we improve our environment through decarbonising our transport systems, but we can also become world leaders in the design and technology that is needed to deliver them.

"The United Kingdom was a pioneer of transport technologies throughout the 19th and 20th centuries, and we are at the forefront of the green transport revolution of the 21st, some of which is being developed right here in Buckinghamshire including the Silverstone Park Enterprise Zone."
