Buxton Road Ashbourne - the most polluted place in the Dales?

Open Letter to DDDC

We request that Derbyshire Dales District Council provide as soon as possible an opportunity for all councillors to be briefed by relevant Council officers on their current strategy for monitoring air quality in the Dales. This briefing should also provide an opportunity for questions to be asked and suggestions made. The meeting, if possible, to be 'open' to the public via YouTube.

Points to be covered should include;

  • The current situation in Ashbourne, its history and the timeline for the declaration of an AQMA.

  • The rationale behind the number and location of NOx sample tubes in the Dales.

  • The strategies currently in place to improve air quality, particularly with reference to NOx and particulates.
