Dear Environment and Sustainability Committee,


I support the campaign for a strong Well-being of Future Generations Bill. I would like to see the Bill strengthened by:


• Adding in targets to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases • Including a strong duty on public bodies to aim to achieve sustainable development in everything they do • Adding a clear definition of sustainable development • Properly considering the impact Wales has on people and the environment overseas • Boosting the powers of the Commissioner and making the role accountable to Assembly Members rather than Welsh Ministers


That in dealing with the matter of sustainable energy, that the right to determine planning applications for nuclear power stations in Wales should be devolved to Wales and not be retained by central UK government, bearing in mind the unsustainability of the problems of long term safe storage of nuclear waste, otherwise we cannot claim to have sustainable planning in Wales.  Sustainable energy supplies can be achieved in Wales with a mix of hydro, wave and wind.


Please consider my views as you scrutinise the legislation over the coming weeks.


Yours sincerely
