All welcome!  Children’s activity and free refreshments.

Air quality monitoring by local parents has shown worrying levels of air pollution near homes and schools in Levenshulme.

Download the Drop-in meeting leaflet.

The Levenshulme investigation started after local parents became concerned about air pollution and possible links to common breathing problems locally – including high incidences of wheezing and use of inhalers amongst babies and toddlers. After talking to other parents a group of local parents installed monitoring tubes at locations where levels of air pollution were considered to be worrying, including outside schools and nurseries and on the congested A6 Stockport Road.

If air pollution levels were as bad all year as they were for the duration of the study this could mean that residents across Levenshulme would be blighted by illegally polluted air – including near schools and nurseries.
