Tamworth Lib Dems express concern about development in the town and air pollution

"We would like to see more attention turned to the town centre and local shopping centres around the constituency where we could convert many empty and partially used retail and commercial units to residential use. We need to think ahead if we are to provide more homes. More housing is needed but if the infrastructure is not put in place first ever increasing pollution from traffic hot spots will be a disaster. Tamworth already has areas where the air quality does not meet requirements. If hundreds of more houses are built before putting in a road and transport system that is fit for purpose poor air quality will put our children's health at serious risk."
