Reduce the pollution in Camelford

This petition had 525 supporters

As a community our lives are being blighted by the volume of traffic that is passing through our town,day and night. On 1st December 2004 everything was agreed after many years of wrangling to build a bypass around the town, but due to several blunders the monies were never forthcoming from government and the road was never built. This has never stopped us trying to get the bypass built but to date it seems to fall on deaf ears. Air quality has been monitored since 2010 to see how levels of NO2 compare to those set out in EU Regulations. When levels reach 40ug/m3 there is cause for concern, when levels reach 60ug/m3 there is "serious risk". The levels in our town are currently 62.1. We need as much help as we can get to have the bypass built to protect our health, our children's health, the environment, and our homes. We have several historic buildings in the town and the vibration from commercial vehicles is causing damage! So please lend us your support to protect our historic town.
