Have there been cases anyone has investigated like our W London case of
a (sports and leisure) centre being proposed to be built two metres from a road
which according to our counts carries over 1000 motor vehicles an hour for 8 hours a day 5 days a week?
I'm very unhappy about having no comparative info at all about pollution - or traffic, come to that. We have no money to hire a traffic expert.
All we can do is demonstrate unsuitability of location owing to traffic volume (+ jams) causing access problems for children, old and disabled, with no backing pollution figures.

Dear TPRightsofMan,
we unfortunately do not have very precise information about air pollution generated by road transport at a local level, most of our information being at national and European levels. However you may find a number of tools useful to help you determine air quality:
- Eye On Earth – Citizen observatory on air and noise – AirWatch: http://www.eea.europa.eu/[…]/eye-on-earth-old
- The Unvalidated real-time air quality map http://www.eea.europa.eu/[…]/real-time-map
- The validated air quality maps and data http://www.eea.europa.eu/themes/air/air-quality/map/airbase

You may also find useful information in the website of the European Commission dedicated to Environmental Impact assessment (EIA): http://ec.europa.eu/environment/eia/home.htm
A list of EAI centres in member states is available at: http://ec.europa.eu/environment/eia/contacts2.htm
