Cheshire East Council is holding a drop-in session in Middlewich tomorrow to enable residents to get further information and share comments about air quality in the Lewin Street area.
The council has undertaken air pollution monitoring at various sites along Lewin Street, in Middlewich, to better understand the levels of nitrogen dioxide (NO2) due to traffic in the area.
This monitoring data highlights that the levels of NO2 in the last few years have been above the UK air quality standard. The council has, therefore, to declare an air quality management area (AQMA).
The drop-in session enables the council to provide information to local residents and listen to any ideas that may help to improve the air quality – and suitable actions may be included in the Cheshire East air quality action plan (AQAP).
The council would like to receive local residents’ views, comments and any actions considered relevant for the AQAP. These comments can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org before 1 October.
As part of this engagement, a public drop-in session is being held on Tuesday 10 September 2019 between 3.30pm and 6.30pm at Middlewich Town Hall, where views and comments can be discussed.
