Air Pollution Campaign Launch - Deal Town Hall
On Tuesday 12th of March 2019 Deal Town Council held a public meeting at the Town Hall to launch its campaign to tackle air pollution caused by idling vehicle engines.
Deal Town Clerk, Lorna Crow, says: "The Town Council, cross party, agreed to develop and support a campaign to reduce air pollution outside schools and at certain road junctions. Pollution from cars and lorries has long been linked to asthma and other lung conditions. It is increasingly linked to heart conditions and dementia. It is also linked to man-made climate change. The Town Council is keen to reduce the local impact of vehicle air pollution."
The Town Council is looking for volunteers among the public to help get the message out that leaving your vehicle idling is damaging to everyone's health.
The Chairman of the Town Council's Transport and Infrastructure Committee says: "We looking to get the message out to youngsters through schools as they are among those who are most affected by air pollution. Primary school children's lungs are closer to car exhaust fumes than adults' lungs when they walk along the same pavement. But everybody can play their part in fighting air pollution."
