A new action plan to improve air quality in areas such as Bourne and the Deepings is under review and open to the public.

South Kesteven District Council’s Air Quality Action Plan has been in place since 2010 but now the council wants people to give their views on improving air quality in general

The council is committed to improving air quality in our district and we have produced a Draft Air Quality Action Plan that contains measures to improve air quality

Coun Nick Craft, portfolio holder for healthy environment, said: We have been monitoring air quality in the district since 1998 and it is generally good.

“However, like over 230 other councils across the UK, we have found that levels of some pollutants are above the guidelines set by the Government in some areas.

“The council is committed to improving air quality in our district and we have produced a Draft Air Quality Action Plan that contains measures to improve air quality.

“We will consider all comments received and use them to finalise the Air Quality Action Plan which we expect to publish later this year.”
