Pollution on the agenda

Have your say

A SEMINAR is being held to discuss ways of managing air pollution in Sheffield – after The Star published statistics revealing the problem is no longer confined to traditional hotspots.

The Environmental Law Foundation is holding the free event at The Circle centre, Rockingham Street, next Thursday from 5.30pm.

A spokesman said: “We have invited experts to discuss how air pollution is managed in Sheffield, how it impacts on the communities, and why it is important for them all to engage in the planning process and development of Sheffield.”

Figures revealed the worst area for nitrogen dioxide is now a busy junction in Broomhill, where levels of the gas are 50 per cent above the European safe limit.
