Air Quality

We intend to develop a community led appraoch to monitoring levels of Nitrous Oxide in the air, with the aim of raising awareness of the degree of air pollution in congested areas of the town. We have been  liaising with Sheffield Council who have empowered communities to monitor air quality for many years. We hope to involve Hexham residents with monitoring different locations in the town, as well as asking school pupils to carry out surveys of  traffic density to see what correlation there is between the two sets of results.
