Consultation process

Public consultation, the consultation commenced on 13th February 2020 and ran for 12 weeks. Information and views were gathered by means of an online/paper survey, and via stakeholder drop-in events, with some consultees choosing to write letters or emails. Drop-in style events were held at Farrington Gurney (25th February) and Temple Cloud (26th February and 4th March) to enable stakeholders to come along and discuss air quality issues. Officers also attended Parish Council meetings at both parishes on 11th February (Temple Cloud) and 17th February (Farrington Gurney) to provide information and answer questions.


The consultation was on residents living near to the affected roads, and to some extent the wider Temple Cloud and Farrington Gurney communities. Statutory consultees were also invited to comment on the Air Quality Action Plan.
