Public asked for views on air quality improvements

Published Friday 21 July 2017

Views are being sought on plans to improve air quality in the Kibworths.

Last month Harborough District Council, which monitors local air quality, published its air quality annual status report.

Generally the air quality in the district is good; however recent monitoring in the Kibworths during 2016 found levels of nitrogen dioxide which exceed the annual mean air quality objective along a small section of the A6 Leicester Road.

As a result the council is required to declare an air quality management area and devise an action plan to improve air quality. It is the second air quality management area to be declared in the district after Lutterworth high street in 2001.

Views on how to improve air quality can be submitted by email to or by writing to Air quality consultation, Environment Team, Harborough District Council, The Symington Building, Adam & Eve Street, Market Harborough, Leics, LE16 7AG.

Alternatively two drop-in sessions are being held at Kibworth Grammar School Hall on the following dates:

  • Wednesday 26 July 2017, 6pm-8pm
  • Thursday 27 July 2017, 10am-12noon

There will also be a public meeting, organised by Harborough District Council, at Kibworth Grammar School Hall on the 16 August 2017 starting at 7.30pm.
