THERE’S just days left for Sihillians to have their say on the Council’s draft Air Quality Strategy.
The proposals show how the Council is planning to improve air quality across the borough between 2024 and 2028.
Councillor Andy Mackiewicz, Cabinet Portfolio Holder for Climate Change and Planning, said: “I’d like to encourage anyone who hasn’t yet done so to complete our short survey, which will really help guide our plans on improving air quality across the borough.
“We have a range of environmentally friendly projects planned, building on our existing work in this area.
“The draft strategy gives us a strong and sustainable route to further improve air quality across Solihull over the next few years.”
Air pollution is the top environmental risk to human health in the UK, and the fourth greatest threat to public health after cancer, heart disease and obesity.
Poor air quality is known to shorten lives and impact on people’s quality of life, particularly for the most vulnerable, the young and old, and those living with health conditions.
The deadline for views is Friday (February 9).
