The 2016 Barnet Council governance project - No 6 Air quality

During Juanary, the Barnet Eye is undertaking a project to ascertain how the council is managing its business and our environment. We are submitting a series of FoI requests asking important questions.

Once we have all of the answers, we will be collating these and producing a report, so that the citizens of the Borough can understand exactly what their council is doing to ensure we live in a safe, healthy and well run borough. 

Today we focus on pollution levels and air quality in the London Borough of Barnet. Where are the danger spots? What is the risk to our children? How many people have died as a result of poor air quality? What guidelines have been issued to schools to protect our children.
