In March 2021, the five local Authorities in Oxfordshire: Oxford City, Cherwell, West Oxfordshire, South Oxfordshire and Vale of White Horse, together with Oxfordshire County Council were awarded a DEFRA air quality grant to develop an innovative air quality website for Oxfordshire.
The authorities want the new website to be used as an important tool to inform, communicate and raise awareness of air pollution to all visitors and residents across Oxfordshire.
The new website will allow complete integration of all relevant air quality related information from all district councils in Oxfordshire under one single platform. It’s also expected to be designed to provide evidence and advice in a simple and accessible manner across a wide range of air quality subjects, tailored to and for different age groups and levels of expertise.
The authorities would like the new website to be able to address a wide range of user needs and engage with the largest amount of users possible, hence it is extremely important for them to undertand what type of air quality contents and tools residents would find more relevant and useful.
Residents that want to feedback to the consultation can do so here.
