Fair Access for all to Hampshire's tips - Campaign Timeline

THE PRINCIPLES OF OUR FAIR ACCESS FOR ALL CAMPAIGN

Our campaign is based on three principles: Equal access - for all Hampshire's council tax payers, not just car owners. Tackling the climate emergency - by making recycling and repurposing easier for everyone. Promoting active healthy living - by encouraging those who can, to leave their cars at home and visit the HWRCs on foot or bike.
