Call for a Public Health Enquiry into Horn Lane Pollution: For many years now the recorded levels of pollution around the Horn Lane Industrial Site have been alarmingly high. Local GPs and Chemists have noted a rise in asthma and respiratory illnesses in the immediate area and a local GP has asked Ealing Council's Director of Public Health, Dr Jackie Chin, to press for a Public Health Enquiry. With the ongoing pollution from the cement and waste factories within the Horn Lane site along with an increase in the local population, traffic, CrossRail and the Friary Park proposal we encourage you to voice your support for a Public Health Enquiry. To do so, simply email your support for a Public Health Enquiry to Dr Jackie Chin at: ChinJ@ealing.gov.uk
Here is the monitoring website if you wish to monitor the pollution level locally. This affects us all. Thank you for your support in this important issue.
The Association's Constitution was ratified by its members at our 1st AGM on the 24th March, 2015 and can be viewed here.
