Ingatestone and Fryerning Parish Council will be working on tackling the vital issue of air pollution in 2022.
The Climate Change Emergency Working Group has been working on a number of new projects in the past year, including the creation of a new community garden on the footpath leading down to Ingatestone train station from Fairfield.
In the last meeting, the group spoke about the issues surrounding air pollution and quality in the parish and, in particular, the current lack of emissions monitoring. The group identified this as being a key issue, as there is not yet a benchmark to help create a plan and reduce emissions as a community.
It is hoped that there will be future projects run by the parish council and Anglo European School, following the success of the first school’s climate conference.
