Lib Dems Demand Action on East Grinstead Air Quality

September 30, 2018 11:11 AM

The A22 London Road in East Grinstead has the highest NO2 concentration values across the Mid Sussex District, as stated by the District Council's own Air Quality Annual Status Report. A report issued by engineering consultants Atkins in 2012 stated that the London Road in East Grinstead suffers from poor air quality, and recommended that mitigation measures are implemented with high priority. To date, no measures have been implemented by the District Council to either ease traffic congestion or to improve air quality.

In response to a Freedom of Information Act request, the District Council replied that "Measured NO2 levels at this location do not exceed the National Objective levels so there is no requirement to declare an Air Quality Management Area". The Lib Dems will continue to campaign for improvements to air quality in East Grinstead.
