Climate Change Lockdowns disguised as “15 Minute Cities” under the UN Agenda 2030 directive

Your Government is pushing ahead with plans to bring 15-minute cities to a location near you. They are a brainchild of the UNs Agenda 2030, and are in effect Climate Change lockdowns.

Climate Change Lockdowns disguised as “15 Minute Cities” under the UN Agenda 2030 directive

Once combined with a digital ID, a carbon credit score and a programmable central bank digital currency (CBDC) token, you’ve got the  perfect recipe for creating a digital open-air prison.

Canterbury’s council bosses have drawn up a radical plan to tackle  congestion that will split the city into five zones and ban residents  from driving directly between them.

During the Middle Ages, Canterbury, a cathedral city in southeast  England, was a pilgrimage site. With cobbled streets and timber-framed  houses, ancient Roman walls encircle its medieval centre. It has a  population of 43432.

In Canterbury’s ‘Local Plan to 2045’,  the council proposes splitting the city into five districts, with  drivers unable to cross between districts by private car – even if they  live there.

Within the document is the idea of 15-minute neighborhoods: For example – “Community  infrastructure provided as part of upcoming developments should be  accessible to new and existing residents – preferably within 15 minutes  walking time and always within 15 minutes.” – They say this is about  ’living locally’.

This  is the teaser guys… give you a zone, penalise you in to staying there.  15min cities: no travel, WFH, no cars, no meat, controlled digital  currency.

If this is abhorrent: stand up!

Canterbury traffic zones ‘like postwar Berlin without the wall

Those who break the rules will face fines (possibly the same as Oxford’s £70) enforced  by number-plate recognition cameras and won’t be able to make simple  journeys around the city. According to Page 14 of the draft Canterbury District Local Plan to 2045 – there will be “Implementation of an ANPR-based sectoring system and modal filters to limit cross-city trips.”

They will instead have to drive out of their ‘neighbourhood’ and onto  a new bypass – essentially a much larger outer ring road – before  re-entering their chosen zone. Short, direct journeys across the city –  like to supermarkets, retail parks or GP surgeries – will be banned to  encourage residents to walk, cycle or use public transportation.

Designed after a system used in the Belgian city of Ghent, the proposal is part of the council’s revised draft Local Plan. In  the five zones, major roads will be closed, forcing drivers to ditch  their cars or use the bypass. ANPR cameras will be at the entry and exit  points of each zone so drivers can’t move between neighbourhoods.

Sustainable Development was one of the topics at the Canterbury hustings, with support from across the political spectrum.

Ben Fitter-Harding  Conservative leader of Canterbury City Council, an advocate for  sustainable development who has worked on the Canterbury Circulation  Plan for two years, is confident the major road network transformation  will turn out well. He said:

“For residents within the five zones, they can access the facilities  within their neighbourhood by car if they need to. But if you want to  travel to a different neighbourhood, the most convenient way to do that  will be by walking, cycling or using public transport.”

“It would likely be a frictionless system, so there would be cameras.”

“We will fine people who decide ‘I’m planning to drive across the city, I don’t care’.

“If you drive between neighbourhoods you will receive a fine.”

He continued: “The amenities and services that you would need are all  in your neighbourhood. You wouldn’t have all the rat running, so it’d  be fantastic if we could achieve it.”

He also said: “In 20 years’ time, you’re likely going to have your  groceries delivered or you’re planning to go to a different supermarket  or a new local shop in your own neighbourhood.”

However, Lib Dem councillor Nick Eden-Green says the scheme raises some “serious questions”. “When I visit friends I  don’t consider which zone they are living in. It’s “frankly ridiculous –  you’re creating ghettos where people are locked in and can’t travel  elsewhere.”

It gets even more difficult for outsiders too: Visitors from other  Kent districts and boroughs, or tourists, can’t park within the city  walls. As a result, most parking lots will be made redundant. Tourists  and visitors can park in one of four zones around the city centre. From  each zone, visitors will be able to ride the park and ride into the  city.

This is all being done outside of the normal democratic process, for instance in Oxford where similar plans are afoot. Traffic filters will divide the city into “15-minute” neighbourhoods. Duncan Enright,  Oxfordshire County Council’s cabinet member for travel and development  strategy, said the filters would turn Oxford into “a 15-minute city” with local services within a small walking radius.

Mr Enright said:

“It is about making sure you have the community centre  which has all of those essential needs, the bottle of milk, pharmacy,  GP, schools which you need to have a 15-minute neighbourhood.”

While Ben Fitter-Harding blasted the social media chatter and told people not to “spread misinformation.”

This is also part of the UN Sustainable Development Goals for cities and human settlements. As part of the 2030 Agenda, Sustainable Development Goal 11, “Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient, and sustainable”.

Agenda 2030 is being pushed by local leaders.

In London, surveillance technology is expanding to control our car  trips. London’s ULEZ zones will be expanded to cover most, if not all,  of the city. This means you will have to pay £12.50 a day for the  privilege of getting into your car, no matter how short or long the trip  is. There will be a 200 million pound ANPR camera network to fine drivers when they do.

The plans for Canterbury seem to be derived from a plan which was proposed in 2020 labelled “The 15 minute city” and is part of the overall Net Zero 2030 agenda.

Under the plan described by Councillor Val Kenny: “The covid-19 crisis has torn a hole  in city budgets decimating urban economies” and thus to build back better they recommended: That “all residents will live in 15 minute cities.”

The decentralisation of services has become known as the 15-minute  city. This is where you can do your job, get to school, see your doctor  and be entertained all within a 15-minute radius of where you live.  Promoting active travel and reducing car use are key to achieving the  15-minute vision.

Also from the 2021 Canterbury Climate Action Partnership document under the section sustainable transport – it states the following: To  “Encourage CCC to set up a low emissions zone(s) and tackle air quality  hotspots; ensure that all council vehicles are ultra-low  emission/electric by 2030;”

This plan is the same as London’s for the establishment of low-emission zones.

“As climate change and global conflict cause shocks and stresses at faster intervals and increased severity, the 15-minute city will become even more critical.”

World Economic Forum (WEF) – March 15, 2022.

The 15 minute city concept is also being pushed by our esteemed friends at the World Economic Forum: In the article: The surprising stickiness of the “15-minute city”

They explain what it means: The “15-minute city” concept—which  implies having all necessary amenities within a short walk, bike ride,  or public transit trip from one’s home—has demonstrated stickiness not  just as an idea, but as a powerful tool for action – from Paris to  Seoul, from Bogotá to Houston. It was coined in 2016 by Sorbonne professor Carlos Moreno, who won an Obel Award in 2021.”

According to Delloite: “The re-zoning model will gain further traction in the future, boosted  during the COVID-19 pandemic by new ways of working that require less  transport. With climate change as a major global concern, C40 in its C40  Mayors’ Agenda for a Green and Just Recovery has recommended this model  for cities worldwide. This is because its pedestrianisation approach  contributes to a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and supports  environmental sustainability. Most notably, the ‘15-minute city’ was  popularised in 2019 by Paris and is a flagship initiative in the current  programme for the city.”

In many other cities around the UK and the world, this plan is being replicated. Oxford City Council is working on the same thing.


There are 97 cities in the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group, which represents one twelfth of the world’s population and one quarter of the  world’s economy. The C40 was created in October 2005 when London Mayor  Ken Livingstone convened representatives from 18 megacities to reduce  climate pollution together. With the help of former US President Bill  Clinton, Mayor Livingstone and the Clinton Climate Initiative (CCI)  strengthened both organizations in 2006, expanding the network to 40  cities and helping cities deliver projects and project management to  reduce emissions.

It was C40 that introduced the  15-minute city concept. It’s a network of mayors from nearly 100  world-leading cities working together to tackle climate change – right  now it’s headed by London Mayor Sadiq Khan.

It’s understood that the COVID-19 pandemic played a significant role  in accelerating this shift to 15-minute cities and according to Lisa Chamberlain of the World Economic Forum, “the 15-minute city grew from a “nice-to-have” to a rallying cry.”

Global organizations, such as the C40 Cities Climate Leadership  Group, took notice too. In July 2020, they published a framework for  cities to “build back better”, and the 15-minute city concept was at the heart of it.

And who funds It’s a partnership with many companies including the Open  Society Foundations, founded in 1993 by George Soros. Other partners  include the Wellcome Trust, the Clinton Foundation and the World Bank.

In a Twitter thread posted by Frédéric Leroy,  he outlined some of the chilling aspects of these so-called C40 Cities.  Based on his research, you will own zero private vehicles under the  ambitious goal.

He also reports that there are some really powerful people and  organizations behind the C40 initiative. Michael Bloomberg is the C40  Board president, and Sadiq Khan is the current chair. C40 is also part  of the Global Commons Alliance, a public-private partnership with  PlanForThePlanet, the World Economic Forum, Rockefeller Foundation,  WBCSD, EAT, Club of Rome, WWF, WRI etc.

But it's even more massive than that: C40 is part of the so-called #GlobalCommonsAlliance, a Public-Private Partnership with a #PlanForThePlanet. On board: the World Economic Forum, Rockefeller Foundation, WBCSD, EAT, Club of Rome, WWF, WRI, …

Birmingham, Ipswich, Oxford, Manchester, London, Glasgow and Edinburgh are other 15 minute cities:

“15-minute city” – straight out of Agenda 2030. Combine a digital ID  with a carbon credit score and their programmable CBDC token and you’ve  got the makings of a digital open air prison.

As usual, ordinary people will pay for the 15-minute city.  Particularly urban car owners and families who commute across town to  visit relatives or friends.

The plan seems to limit car ownership. If you combine these plans with plans to ban petrol and diesel cars by 2030, it all starts to make sense. It is part of a coercive drive to keep motorists on their toes,  posing as a revival of Britain’s green and pleasant land. Homes with  cars will have to count how often they use them and there will probably  be more surveillance, permits, and penalties coming.

No matter what is happening, it is being done outside of democracy,  by climate change companies and climate zealots. This is in the name of  saving the planet from net zero destruction.

Of course in order to save the day we have to give up more and more  of our privacy and liberties or be fined. The classic behavioural nudge.  No, it’s not a lockdown in the normal sense, but it is more  authoritarian for sure. This is where we must think about our own daily  routines and make sacrifices for the supposed global good. Decarbonising  the west may be a way of deindustrialising the west.
