Woeful response on Brent’s air quality consultation – have your say now!

As of 20 March only 63 out of 350,000 people in Brent have responded to Brent’s consultation for its revised Air Quality Action Plan – apparently this is considered good!! We don’t think it is half good enough.
 
Air pollution, mostly from diesel emissions, is killing an estimated 9,400 people in London annually while 800 schools are on seriously polluted traffic routes. This really is a matter of life and death.
 

QPARA’s Air Pollution Sub-Group (now working with other local action groups) is asking everyone to complete the questionnaire for Brent’s revised Air Quality Action Plan asap. The current closing date is 30 March (though we have urged an extension).  

 
The link is here:  Consultation on Brent Air Quality Action Plan.  To make sense of the questionnaire you need to read the supporting document first (not the summary) but it is mercifully short.
 
Thank you
