Cheshire West and Chester Council is supporting this year's Clean Air Day on 21 June by providing free Park & Ride travel in Chester.
Clean Air Day organisers ask us all to do our bit to clean up the air around us on the longest day of the year. The Council's Park & Ride service uses buses with more environmentally friendly 'enviro-clear' engine technology.

Clean Air Day is organised by the national charity, Global Action Plan. Their website has a wide range of resources and toolkits to help communities, schools and workplaces to improve air quality. (www.cleanairday.org.uk) CLICK HERE
To follow on from Clean Air Day, Council Environmental Health officers are working with Global Action Plan to organise an electric vehicle information event in the borough. The event will be held in front of Chester Town Hall on Wednesday, 25 July 2018. There will be a range of electric vehicles on display, experts on hand to answer questions and the opportunity to book test drives.
The Council's Low Emission Strategy, to tackle air pollution in the borough, is currently being finalised following a recent public consultation and will be launched in the autumn. It includes details of the Council's plans to install charging points for electric vehicles across the borough to encourage the use of low emission vehicles.
