Campaign launched to clean Cheltenham's air


A new campaign has been launched by local Liberal Democrats to clean up Cheltenham's air.

This is in light of a new monitoring report for Gloucestershire County Council that showed air quality in the town is unacceptably low.

 
The scheme, which focused on schools but also measured air quality elsewhere, recommended that the county council focus on lowering harmful NO2 emissions.

Some of the readings at schools approached national safety limits, leaving children at risk of lung damage if exposed over time.

An initial meeting to agree the group's key goals, strategy and terms of reference will be held during the summer. Anyone wishing to get involved in the campaign should email: cleanairchelt@gmail.com
