People in Lichfield and Burntwood are being asked for their views on a plan to reduce air pollution by 2022.
Lichfield District Council has drawn up a draft document outlining how it plans to tackle the issue at two area – Muckley Corner on the A5 and a section of the A38 between Streethay and Alrewas.
Councillor Angela Lax, Cabinet member for legal and regulatory Services, said: “We are committed to reducing the exposure of our residents to air pollution across the district, to improve their health and the natural environment.
“In our air quality action plan, we explain what we as a district council can do to tackle air quality issues within our control.
“There are a large number of air quality policy areas that are outside of our influence, including roads in particular, that are managed by Highways England. However, we will continue to work with regional and central government on policies and issues.
“I hope local residents will read through the plan. We want them to give us their thoughts on the proposed actions which we can take as a district council.”
The air quality action plan can be downloaded at www.lichfielddc.gov.uk/aqap. Views can be sent by emailing email@example.com or in writing to Environmental Protection, Lichfield District Council, Frog Lane, Lichfield WS13 6YY.
The consultation runs until 5pm on 7th August.
