A Guest Article by J Hall
So here we have Tameside MBC its Councillors bang to rights, plus the MP`s who have done absolutely zero during the past 15 years regardless of the report that Tameside has the worst traffic congestion and a large designated Air Quality Management Area (AQMA) where at least 40% of Tamesider’s live.
Before the Labourite generated packs of anonymous attack dogs recommence the onslaught on my long established concerns concerning this National scandal in Tameside, especially in view of any further
plans intended to increase Air Pollution by backing the Longdendale Politicians, the Longdendale Siege Group and the small number of Longdendale residents who are less than 6% of the Tameside Regions Electorate, it’s time the scandal was dealt with by TMBC who are and have been complicit in not checking real time air pollution in localities where they know air pollution considerably exceeds Government and EU required levels.
Having found the secreted away following written statement backed by Andrew Gwynne MP and three Labour Councillors: B Warrington, Smith, and Dawson Lane the proof is out that TMBC
are and have been complicit in ensuring Traffic and therefore Air Pollution has been constantly increased, which proves they have been directly involved in stuffing more and more dangerous toxins into the lungs of many many thousands of Tameside residents
"The A57 is a main road into Manchester City centre and is extremely heavily congested".
(Amazing that TMBC will not and have always refused to monitor air pollution in that locality for very obvious reasons)

18. Those involved with air quality policy in local government and elsewhere attribute the failure of action planning to a range of factors including: the low priority that tends to be
accorded to air quality by the public and local politicians.
