General

North East Lincolnshire Council wants to hear your views on air quality in the borough.

The Air Quality Strategy consultation has been launched ahead of a new strategy for tackling pollution.

The results of the survey will inform the Council’s approach to air quality over the next few years.

Many Council services are affected by air quality, and decisions made in the coming months will have wide-ranging effects on life in North East Lincolnshire.

Councillor Stewart Swinburn, cabinet member for environment at North East Lincolnshire Council, said: “We want North East Lincolnshire to be clean and safe place to live, work and grow up in, and having good air quality is integral to that.

“Air pollution is a major public health risk, which can lead to a number of illnesses, including heart disease, strokes and lung cancer.

“There is also a significant association with asthma and other respiratory infections in children, and we’re doing all we can to reduce these risks and protect the future of our borough.”

It’s thought 4.2 million premature deaths across the world each year are linked to air pollution.

The consultation will run until 1 August 2021. To take part and have your view, visit: https://airqualitystrategy2021.questionpro.eu/.

The government published its Clean Air Strategy in January 2019, which North East Lincolnshire Council will be following to develop its own approach.
