Tim Larner is part of Hope Church in Harrogate, and leads the church's team on environmental issues.  Tim spent a career in transport planning and was exposed at an early stage to the environmental problems linked with motorised transport.  He has grappled throughout his working life with the uncomfortable trade-offs between better transport promoting economic efficiency, meeting social needs, and protecting the environment.  More recently he has developed an interest in a low-energy buildings and the contribution of the planning system to sustainable living.
