Birmingham’s young lungs need clean air

Birmingham’s toxic air means children are not being given the best start in life.

The Council recently agreed to bring in a Clean Air Zone. From January 2020 it will deter some of the most polluting vehicles from entering the centre of Birmingham. We welcome this bold move, but we need to do more to protect children’s developing lungs.

The Council have now drafted a wider Clean Air Strategy that sets out how they could go further and ensure that air quality is improved right across the city. The Strategy is out for consultation until Friday 26 April. This gives us a unique opportunity to make sure that the right action is taken. 

Use our simple form to email Birmingham City Council to tell them what you think about the Clean Air Strategy, adding your own reasons for being concerned about air pollution when prompted, if you wish.

You can also read the full consultation here and we urge you to answer the survey on the consultation site if you can.

We are committed to protecting the privacy and confidentiality of our supporters and will store and use the personal information that you provide on this form in accordance with applicable data protection laws and the Clean Air Parents' Network and ClientEarth privacy policies.

Data collected from this action may be analysed, for example to capture the number of responses from different parts of Birmingham but it will not identify the individuals who have participated. Individual data will be deleted once the action is closed.
