Air Quality Improvement Collaborative Event 2nd June 2015

Venue: Kala Sangam, St Peters House, 1 Forster Square, Bradford, BD1 4TY

Tuesday 2 June, 9.30am start with close at 1.30pm

This exciting morning workshop brought together local experts from across Yorkshire & Humber who are working in a wide variety of specialisms – from public health and planning, to transport and procurement.  As well as learning more about the extent of the burden imposed by poor air quality – both in terms of health impacts and economic burden - participants will have had the opportunity to review the forthcoming West Yorkshire Low Emission Strategy and the Single Transport Plan. We were joined by representatives from various regional councils.

We received great feedback from attendees, which you can access here.
