North West Leicestershire District Council is consulting the public and statutory consultees on the framework it has developed for the assessment of road modification schemes aimed at improving air quality within declared Air Quality Management Areas.
The consultation will run until 2nd of September 2013.
The document is available on the District Council website by Clicking here or can be viewed in the council offices in Coalville.
The Air Quality Action Plan is a statutory requirement and part of the District Council’s continuing Local Air Quality Management responsibilities under Part IV of the Environment Act 1995. The District Council is seeking to produce the Action Plan in partnership with other stakeholder organisations and for that purpose is working closely with other agencies. More »
The purpose of the Action Plan, as required by section 84 of the Environment Act, is to outline measures “in pursuit of the achievement of air quality standards and objectives in the designated area, of any powers exercisable by the authority”.
Please email any comments on the framework to:-

Your views needed on Leicestershire's Future.
Like all councils, Leicestershire County Council has had to make savings over the last few years, as part of the Government’s drive to reduce public debt.
So far, we have succeeded in making major efficiency savings, limiting the impact on key services. But faced with further reductions in Government grant and rising demand for care and other services, the council will have to save more and may have to stop some services. It will also need to look at new and different ways of delivering services, including even closer working with other public service agencies, including Parish & Town Councils. More »
The challenges we’re facing are complicated. We need to plan ahead for the next five years and we would like your help in thinking through the issues and coming up with possible solutions.
A resident’s survey which will be available on-line from today until 15th September via www.leics.gov.uk/future.
A hard copy of the resident’s survey will be circulated door-to-door via the August edition of Leicestershire Matters. We would be grateful if you could help us in encouraging residents and service users to respond to this survey.
There is also a stakeholder survey for service providers, Parish & Town Councils, charities, voluntary organisations and community groups. Please visit www.leics.gov.uk/future/future-stakeholder.htm to access our on-line stakeholder survey. The stakeholder survey closes at noon on Monday 19th August.
