Some Westminster constituencies have changed since the last UK general election as a result of a review of constituency boundaries.

If you do not recognise the name of your constituency, it is likely because of this. You can check which constituency you're in using the link below. You can also find more information about the boundary changes on the UK Parliament website.

Dear Candidates,

We are writing to you ahead of the General Election to ask you to back the Climate & Nature Bill if you are elected to Parliament.

The Climate & Nature Bill is backed by 43,899 members of the public and 1,390 incredible organisations, politicians, and scientists from across the UK.

As local residents, we're alarmed by the damage that's being inflicted on our community, livelihoods, health, and homes as a result of the climate-nature crisis.

Lewes and the wider county of Sussex are increasingly experiencing the devastating loss of biodiversity. Many of our woodlands are absent of wildlife and a third of our natural ecosystems are in decline throughout the UK. As local residents and business owners, we are increasingly vulnerable to the impacts of climate change, our dependence on fossil fuels and the loss of nature. [Source]

Across the nation, disasters like this are contributing to the rising cost of living. The higher prices we are paying for food, energy, transport, and consumer goods are all linked to our dependence on fossil fuels, the knock on effects of runaway climate change, and the destruction of nature.

But there is a solution. The Climate & Nature Bill is the legislation we need to tackle this growing crisis. The CAN Bill will help us build a healthier, more prosperous, nature-rich UK—as well as boosting new jobs and skills for people in Lewes. It will make us:

  • Better off - by ensuring our homes are properly insulated, and our energy is cleaner, less expensive and more secure.
  • Healthier - by reducing air pollution, and by encouraging healthier, more sustainable food consumption, while supporting our farmers and food producers.
  • Happier - by protecting our green spaces and the wildlife that depends on them, ensuring everyone has access to nature and increased wellbeing.
  • More resilient - by reducing the threats from extreme weather, such as flooding, erosion, and crop failure.

Will you be the hero we need in Lewes? All you have to do is say: "Yes, I'm backing the Climate & Nature Bill!"

Yours sincerely,

The voters of Lewes
