Submission-to-RS-2010

Submission to the NW Development Agency’s consultation on the Regional Strategy – RS 2010.
This questions some of its key assumptions – especially the pursuit of economic growth despite making an attempt to bring in the issues of sustainability / climate change / peak hydrocarbons (!).
The RS2010 Issues and Principles paper still sees the region as having to compete nationally and globally for its success – an assumption that needs debunking. Oh, and they also like the airport and the nuclear industry… see http://www.nwregionalstrategy.com/
My comments are posted here as they may help others to make a better contribution to the consultation.
