Air Quality Management Group meeting
Traffic pollution is a concern for many in the Village; this was the main reason for the Planning Inspector rejecting Gladman’s application to build in Pond Farm. All are welcome to a meeting of the Air Quality Management Group (Swale Environmental Protection Team Leader and Borough and Parish Councillors) at 2pm on Wednesday 19 September in the Pavilion, Recreation Ground, Orchard Drive. The Group has access to the air quality monitoring statistics and aims to find practical measures to prevent pollution increasing in the village centre – and hopefully to bring about improvements in air quality.
Resident participation is vital in giving the group greater weight in persuading policy makers to adopt measures to improve the air quality in Newington.
