Storrington residents are being invited to find out more about Horsham District Council’s Air Quality Action Plan at a public exhibition being held in the village.
The Storrington Air Quality Action Plan aims to tackle traffic related pollution. The plan and a further study of traffic management options, prepared by air quality specialists are available to view on Horsham District Council’s website www.horsham.gov.uk.
The exhibition is being held in the former Wine Rack shop in Old Mill Square from today (Monday 18 February) to Friday 1 March inclusive.
There will be a chance to speak to members’ steering group, including officers and members from Horsham District Council, West Sussex County Council and representatives from the parish council. The steering group has the responsibility to agree the measures to be implemented to improve air quality within Storrington. Times when the exhibition will be manned will be posted at the shop as well HDC’s website.
Information about the plan will also be displayed at Storrington Library in Ryecroft Lane between Monday 25 February and Saturday 2 March.
Councillor Sue Rogers, Horsham District Council’s cabinet member for a safer and healthier district, said: “I am pleased with the progress of this work to address the air quality issues in Storrington and this consultation is an important part of this process.”
As a ‘live’ document, the action plan will be updated as more information becomes available and will need to be reviewed each year as part of an air quality progress report.
Comments are also being welcomed during this consultation period, which ends on Friday 15 March, and can be submitted on the council’s website at www.horsham.gov.uk.
