Today is National Clean Air Day – take the survey on air quality in Calderdale

Calderdale Council are currently consulting on the air quality in our towns.

Air quality is a term used to describe how clean or polluted the air is.  Good air quality really means that the air is clean.  In Calderdale the biggest contribution to air pollution comes from road traffic, although other activities and national pollution incidents can have an effect.  Vehicle engines produce both nitrogen dioxide and fine particulate matter (like smoke but not always visible).  For this reason the Council measures these types of pollution close to major roads and in areas where a problem is known or suspected to exist.

Air quality has been in the news recently, with pollution and health concerns making the headlines.  The Council would like to know what you think about air pollution, the Council’s pollution monitoring, and how you would like them to make the information they collect interesting and relevant.
