Kibworth Air Quality Action Plan

From 20 September to 19 November 2018

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

As a result, an 'air quality management area' was declared by Harborough District Council and an action plan devised following feedback from the public. More »

This action plan containing proposals to install an automatic air quality monitor to gather daily data, carry out traffic surveys, explore junction improvements and other measures has now been prepared and published by Harborough District Council.
