Air quality from the High Court to Sutton High Street

Published by:

Air quality is in the news.  The government has once again been ordered in a court case to do better.

Birmingham City Council points out that 900 deaths per year have cause partly attributable to air pollution.

But Eco Sutton is taking action.  We have bought a Clean Space Tag which will enable us to take readings of air quality, around the town at places we reckon will give high readings.

This information will be contributed to the city’s working party.  The city council is working on the creation of a clean air zone; and in general in improving air quality by pushing the use of cleaner vehicles.
