The topic of air pollution has rightly attracted a lot of attention recently, and the impact on children’s health in particular has come in for scrutiny.

Kettering Borough Council has a statutory duty to monitor air pollution in the borough. The Monitoring & Audit Committee will talk about air pollution in the borough at its next meeting on the 6th November, and this is something that I have been pushing to have included on the agenda.

The committee is Chaired by Labour’s Northfield Councillor Jonathan West, and I am the Vice Chair. You can find agendas, reports and minutes from the committee on Kettering Borough Council’s website by clicking here.
