Birmingham City Council is holding a consultation on Birmingham residents' attitudes about the level of air pollution in Birmingham and what actions residents want to be taken to reduce air pollution. The consultation can be found at this link, and closes on April 4th 2017. The consultation only takes 5 minutes to complete, but the data will help Birmingham City Council to set their priorities on how to tackle air pollution.

If you would like more information about the problems posed by air pollution, the WHO has a factsheet on the effects of air pollution that you can read. Push Bikes frequently argues that promoting cycling is good for everyone, whether they cycle or not, because when people cycle, they will be producing no air pollution for that journey. We think that strongly promoting cycling should be a central part of Birmingham City Council's strategy on tackling air pollution.
