BioMass – Reply from Trafford’s Director of Public Heal

I have received a reply from the Director of Public Health who has made enquiries of the Health Protection Agency. The reply infers the strong causality between airborne pollution and reduced life expectancy of 6months per newborn baby nationally (Clearly this will be more where particulate pollution is more). Whilst acknowledging that the additional emissions in themselves may not exceed allowable levels the reply does confirm that “any increase in particle concentrations should be assumed to be associated with some effect on health”.

    Hi Councillor Cordingley,

    I’d be interested to see the letter from Abdul Razzaq but it’s not showing correctly on your blog – something to do with google docs I think! Nick

      Hi Nick,
      I tried sending the original document to your gmail email addressed but it bounced. (Acccount does not exist)

      I’ve provided a direct link to the google doc which might work better than the embedded version


I love hearing your views
