Residents are being asked to have their say on how the borough’s few areas of poor air quality should be improved.
In 2015, it was discovered that areas around Shute End, Denmark Street and London Road in Wokingham Town and Twyford around the A321 crossroad have higher than the recommended levels of nitrogen dioxide in the air.
As a result, these areas were designated as Air Quality Management Areas and draft Action Plan to improve air quality have been drawn up with input from residents and local interest groups. The borough council now needs residents and local interest groups to comment on these plans before they are finalised.
Larger quantities of nitrogen dioxide are more commonly found in areas where there is traffic congestion and therefore the action plans focus on ways to reduce car use and congestion in the specific areas and generally across the borough.
The Action Plan and survey can be found on the consultation page and will be open until 28 July.
