Suffolk Coastal: Concerns about air quality

AIR quality in Suffolk coastal remains generally good but two problem areas are still causing concern, according to latest reports.

Members of the public are now invited to comment on the findings .

Suffolk Coastal District Council has published a progress report to give residents an update on air quality.

While it is generally good there are two areas of concern – the junction of Lime Kiln Quay Road, Thoroughfare and St John’s Street in Woodbridge and the area at Dooley Inn, Ferry Lane, Felixstowe.

The areas have been a worry for some time and both were made Air Quality Management Areas (AQMA) in a bid to drive improvement.

The district council has also published a further assessment for Ferry Lane. It shows all pollutants except for nitrogen oxide are an acceptable level.

The AQMA will remain in place and a draft action plan will be drawn up to try and help reduce levels of the gas.
