A Breath Of Fresh Air For The City

As the song has it, “All I need is the air that I breathe” – and Sheffield City Council”:https://www.sheffield.gov.uk/ is committed to making sure that the air we breathe is less polluted.

Air pollution contributes to 500 deaths a year in Sheffield, causing strokes, lung cancer and cardiovascular disease. The biggest cause of pollution is transport, especially diesel vehicles. The UK, including Sheffield, has been in breach of the legal limits for Nitrogen Dioxide (NO₂) levels since January 2010.

But the council is currently consulting on plans to reduce air pollution and would like the public’s help to shape what these plans are. So they have set up a Clean Air Zone Consultation with hopes that the zone will cover the inner ring road and the city centre, including Park Square and the A61/Parkway junction. The proposed zone is not final and may be subject to minor changes through feedback from the consultation.The Council plans to introduce the Clean Air Zone in early 2021.

You can see the entire strategy here and take part in the consultation as a member of the public here .

If you have any questions the Air Quality Team. would love to hear from you.

Disability Sheffield is a forward-thinking, energetic organisation doing a lot of positive work in Sheffield. I have no doubt they will continue to do so for a long time to come.

When I moved to Sheffield nearly five years ago it was my "go to" organisation. I expect it to stay that way. All the staff and volunteers seem to pull out little gems of effort that disabled people like me couldn't do without. Professionally and personally - I love em :)
