Council to invite public to air quality workshops

By on March 25, 2018

Cheshire East Council has 18 air quality management areas where pollution levels exceed UK limits – and the responsibility of improving this is a key priority for the authority.

The affected areas are located in Congleton, Crewe, Disley, Knutsford, Macclesfield (including Bollington), Mere, Middlewich, Nantwich and Sandbach.

The council has an air quality action plan, which has been in place since 2011.  With the increased number of air quality management areas in Cheshire East, the council has recognised there is a need to review the current air quality action plan.

The plan is a statutory document, which contains measures which seek to improve air quality across the borough.

The council strongly believes that residents will have a valuable input in contributing to the revised action plan. Cheshire East is planning to hold a number of early-evening action-planning workshops during April and May.

We welcome anyone with an interest regarding air quality in the areas listed above to register to attend. These ideas will be considered and where possible, included in the review of the action plan.

To register your interest please email or call 0300 123 5015 before Sunday 15 April, with your name, address and the area you are interested in from those mentioned above.

Once we have the details of those who wish to attend, we will send out invitations to the relevant workshop for your area.
