Study Proves Proposed Public Space Highly Polluted
In January 2015 A Better Lee Green partnered with Network for Clean Air to measure current pollution levels around the Leegate Centre.
We are working on a full report which will be released soon, but here is a short summary:
- A tube at the tigers head measures dangerous pollutants at 75% above legal maximum limits
- A tube 16 metres back from burnt ash road – where st modwen plan the back of their public space to be – measures 53% above legal limits
- A tube in the centre of the current, sheltered square – which is the configuration of public space in the new development that the Working Group, Lee Manor Society and A Better Lee Green are calling for – measures 13% safely below the legal limit.
