Air quality will be improved over the coming years as part of a plan by North Lincolnshire Council.
Initially, the council will invest in new, high-tech air quality monitoring systems which deliver accurate data in real-time. This data will be available to the public as well as professionals working on improving the air.
Many local companies have made good progress to reduce emissions too but more needs to be done over the coming years. The council is committing to working with these industries and partners – including the Health and Safety Executive – to take a joint approach to tacking the issue.
Cllr David Rose, cabinet member for environment, said: “We have launched our Green Futures proposals which embeds environmental protections and enhancements into everything we do and across all that we are responsible for – it touches every single community, every single business and every single resident.
“It recognises we all play our part in making our area a cleaner, greener, healthier and more sustainable and attractive place to live, work and visit.”
Moves to electric vehicles are expected to have a major impact on improving air quality too.
