Air quality in North Lincolnshire continues to improve.

The council is now further investing, alongside industry, Government and local businesses. This includes replacing monitoring stations with new state-of-the-art technology to give even more accurate detail.

Additional investment also continues to plant thousands of trees, develop a network of electric vehicle charging stations as more people move to greener forms of transport and helping schools go green with solar panels – three schemes aligned to the council’s A Green Future.

Including a pledge for the council to become carbon neutral by 2030, A Green Future, is designed to ensure the environment is left in a better position for future generations while ensuring support for business growth, job creation and improving living standards.

Cllr Rob Waltham, leader of North Lincolnshire Council, said: “While the air quality in our area is getting better, we can always do more, and we continue to work with the Government and the local industry to help make further reduction.

“Our new investment in monitoring stations will take this work forward, giving us clear and accurate data on air quality using the latest technology.”
