One of our members thought it would be good to create some imagery, highlighting the issues facing castlepoint- after all- a picture paints a thousand words. We asked if he could provide some commentary for the inspiration behind these images.
'The concept came to me last night during a restless sleep and a moment’s inspiration.
I have been commenting on various facebook sites about the current Castle Point Local Plan which is putting developers’ profits before residents’ health and well-being, by allowing destruction of the carbon absorbing green fields to accommodate unnecessary house building.
Then the catchy rhyme of Residents’ Health before Developers’ Wealth materialised.
I compiled the diagram image, from forest to deforestation, and this demonstrated and inspired the Evolution of Air Pollution slogan.
Finally, I wanted a ‘green’ slogan to encourage protection of the green belt to avoid fuelling over-congestion.
Where a picture paints a thousand words, it is sometimes more communicative to create a visual image of the point you are trying to put across, than lengthy paragraphs of texts.
Feel free to utilise these posters to promote the principle that all this development will adversely affect our health and negatively increase the effects of climate change.'
You will find these images below and also on the resources page. Feel free to print, use and promote local issues. :-)
