Sustainable Transport Holdings are a transport campaigning group based in the wonderful town of Northampton, in the East Midlands of England. Sustainable Transport Holdings owns four other organisations, who do the campaigning:
Sustainable Transport Northamptonshire
Sustainable Transport England
Sustainable Transport Wales
Sustainable Transport LondonSE
Having this type of structure allows us to focus on one area at a time, depending on how much it needs dedication.
Sustainable Transport Holdings was founded by me, Harry Burr, in early 2020 during the first Coronavirus lockdown in the UK. It started with the Weedon Station Project, which got an early boost of attention from the press, MPs, and other local people and local councils. In August of that same year, I decided to branch into different local projects. I started with South Northants Link, a campaign to relink Northampton, Banbury, and Leamington Spa with a new transport link.
After a while, I decided I wanted to start campaigning outside of Northamptonshire, so I started Sustainable Transport Holdings, which allowed me to campaign within the rest of the UK, taking advantage of all our sub-brands.
Back to the present day. Sustainable Transport Holdings, as of February 2021, are campaigning for four separate concepts to come to life, including two tram networks, one railway station, and one general transport link.
Sustainable Transport Holdings are constantly looking countrywide at where a new link to the transport network would be necessary for that place to grow. We are dedicating most of our efforts at the moment (Feb 2021) to Northamptonshire, Milton Keynes, IoW, Reading, and Middlesbrough.
Sustainable Transport Holdings are constantly looking to grow, too, so we are also looking into going international, slowly, in phases.
