Financial advice and emotional support on how you can ease the cost of living squeeze.

Saffron Walden Clean Air Project

Our Clean Air Project, aimed at creating a 'cleaner, healthier and greener' environment, will be delivered across all businesses, schools, and residents in Saffron Walden.

Our vision

The Clean Air Project will increase awareness of air pollution, an invisible health concern that negatively affects all Saffron Walden residents. While increasing awareness, the project will provide businesses, schools and residents with methods of reducing their exposure to and production of air pollution.

Why clean air?

This project is being undertaken to improve air quality in Saffron Walden. Despite recent improvements in air quality we recognise that there is a need to do more to reduce emissions of nitrogen dioxide and particulate matter and make the town a healthier place to live.
