National Liberal Party 2015 General Election Manifesto – Section 4 – The Environment

The NLP would like to see renewable energy become the norm.

THE CORE VALUES of National Liberalism include Liberty, Democracy, Independence and Ecology. In respect of the latter, we believe that it’s the duty of man to live in harmony with nature and not destroy it.

National Liberals believe that we need to live a more sustainable way of life – being less greedy, being less wasteful, using less natural resources and knowing where our food comes from. We feel that this will lead to a more rewarding, healthy, considerate and possibly ‘simpler’ life.

As always, the NLP wishes to encourage debate and feedback – good, bad or indifferent. To let us know what you think of our ideas relating to Political Self-Determination, simply go to our Facebook page here and look out for this article – simply post your views in the comments section.


The Environment

Solar Panels on Houses

• All new housing must have solar panelling.

Recent advances in low cost solar panel tile technology should be fully utilised.


• We will increase investment into renewable energy.

We would like to see various forms of renewable energy – such as solar, wind, tidal, and pumped-storage become the norm.

Green Spaces

• We will protect our green spaces.

We will oppose policies that increase our population beyond sustainable levels. We will release run-down housing stock, long-term empty properties, and available brownfield land.


• We will end subsidies for the fracking industry. Companies wishing to conduct fracking will need permission from all landowners within one mile of the fracking site.

We favour safe forms of renewable energy. We are not convinced about the safety or desirability of fracking. We would remove market incentives that presently favour fracking.
