There is still another week to have your say on how air quality could be improved across the borough.
Richmond Council has been consulting with residents and stakeholders on its proposed Air Quality Action Plan (AQAP) over the past five weeks.
The proposed AQAP is a statutory document that outlines how the Council will work to improve air quality across the borough.
Richmond Council Cabinet Member for Environment, Cllr Pamela Fleming, said:
“Ensuring we address the issue of air quality is one of the most important challenges for the Council.
“The evidence is clear that poor air quality and pollution can have serious health implications for people in Richmond upon Thames, in particular those suffering from underlying medical conditions.
“It’s important to recognise that poor air quality is a responsibility of us all. We need to work together, with external partners to tackle the problem head on.
“If you haven’t yet had your say I want to urge you to do so before the deadline.”
Have your say before Monday 30 October.
