We have been awarded funding from DEFRA for a two year behaviour change project to tackle levels of pollution in the borough. Through the project we will be working in partnership with residents, schools and community groups to raise awareness of air quality issues and encourage people to take action.
We know that small easy changes to driving habits, such as switching the engine off whilst stationary, can cut pollution by up to 30% - think how much cleaner the air will be with 30% less pollution!
