TCAG ask Council pollution question

Full Council Meeting – 8pm, Weds 27th Sept 2017 – TCAG ask Council pollution question

TCAG ask Council pollution question at the forthcoming full Council meeting this Weds.  The question will be a follow up to a previous question the group asked a year ago in relation to pollution levels, and what the Council intended doing about them.

The question that TCAG asked in Sept 2016:
With an increasing number of Heavy Good Vehicles using Thurrock’s road network and a linked decreasing air quality (in recent years illustrated by increasing Air Quality Monitoring in the Borough). Will the Council introduce a Low Emissions Zone for Thurrock, following the lead of many neighbouring London Boroughs?

Our question this week will be:

“In light of a question on Low Emission Zones submitted to Full Council in September 2016, Can the Portfolio Holder for Transport make a full statement as what actions are being undertaken to reduce all forms of Pollution, including Pollution from Traffic?”

This is a Full Council Meeting, and therefore open to members of the public, so if you can, please do come along for 8pm on Wednesday 27th Sept.  It is held at the Council Chamber, Civic Offices, New Road, Grays, Essex, RM17 6SL. (Click here for map)

This is the first full Council meeting since the one in July where TCAG members were ejected, so it would be great to have a good turn out.  Please come along if you can!
