This is not strictly speaking a planning matter, but as it is relevant to local quality of life we thought it worth drawing to your attention. It concerns a research proposal from the University of Surrey that intends to undertake a study into the effects of different vegetation and leaf types on roadside air pollutant removal.

The researchers therefore require either one road that contains a range of different plant species (particularly as hedges), or a range of sites that contain different species in fairly comparable conditions (e.g. in terms of distance from the road).

If you live have a garden that contains any species in the list attached to this email and would be interested in supporting this study please contact Yendle Barwise on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
