Transition Belper: Pollution Survey

The Travel and Transport Group of Transition Belper has been involved over the past few months in helping with the Belper Neighbourhood Plan. They have provided ideas and content aimed at ensuring that the plan provides a pleasant and sustainable environment in their town.

The group are now exploring whether they can help to measure and understand levels of pollution around Belper, Duffield and other areas of DE56 that are near main roads. Of special concern are the levels of nitrogen dioxide which are emitted from vehicle exhausts and known to cause a range of serious health problems. If you live near such a road and would be interested in taking measurements please contact the group's Transport Group:
