We are funding towards a target of £3600. Rather than one target of £3600, which was our first appeal, we have switched to working an incremental basis. The second target of £1000 has been reached, now we are aiming for £1250
This avoids the scenario of us the first appeal where if had raised £3000 all the monies would have gone back to the donors as it was on an all or nothing basis.
A comprehensive report could cost £3600, however Prof Peckham can do a shortened version at £1000. It would be best to have the comprehensive version, but a shorted version would still be of value to the campaign. The full report would scrutinise the modelling used by the Tesco air experts
Professor Peckham has done enough work so far to make this statement.
Prof Stephen Peckham and Dr Ashley Mills from the Centre for Health Services Studies at The University of Kent said "The proposed development is in an area of high pollution where NO2 measurements already exceed legal objective limits at two local primary schools (Winston Way and Chadwell Heath). Further development requires careful scrutiny to protect the health of residents yet it would appear that the local authority has been neither careful nor objective with regards to air quality in the context of this planning application."
I have had an assurance from Dr Mills that we will have the £1000 report on or before 16th July which will be published on this site.
