Air quality figures in Colsterworth are incorrect, according to South Kesteven District Council
A warning over air quality, which saw a 70-home development on the A1 north of Stamford shelved last month, has been disproved by South Kesteven District Council officers.
Colsterworth parish councillor Mark Ramage told the authority’s planning committee last month that the site of the outline proposals had a level of nitrogen dioxide 40 per cent above European standards.
Mr Ramage said Defra figures placed the level at 60 micrograms, whereas the recommended figure was 40.
