Portsmouth City Council are Failing Us!
We demand action now!
The Department of Health has identified air pollution as one of the biggest health risks across the UK and sadly Public Health England estimates 95 premature deaths in Portsmouth every year from small particulate pollution. Furthermore, with air quality across the city exceeding legal levels of Nitrogen dioxide (NO2) we need urgent action to ensure the city is a safer place for pedestrians, cyclists and children walking to school.
Be part of the 1000 people to trigger a council debate - Take action for clean air and sign the e-petition.
The Portsmouth Air Quality Strategy was published by PCC in 2017, however, we still await the delayed consultation of the draft action plan, which must set out how air quality will be brought into safe levels.
Petition launch event, 15:30-17:00 Guildhall Square, see details
Portsmouth Green Party welcome the decision to put air quality action plan out for consultation but are deeply disappointed that there is no timeline to accompany this process. Full report now available.
