Here’s a Press Release posted to-day! Looks bland and insignificant enough, doesn’t it? Well, that’s what ‘YW’ hopes we will all think.
Except, here at the Waverley Web, we dug a little deeper and have discovered the sh*t is hitting ‘YW’s fan with a vengeance because it has duped its own unsuspecting councillors, it’s residents and possibly even some of it’s officers with information contained in its air quality monitoring procedure.
No problem there then, unless you happen to have asthma, respiratory problems, or any other health problems that are acerbated by filthy and polluted air!
What you may ask is the latest little cover-up all about?
Suffice to say the council has been burying/concealing it’s Air Quality Report for Farnham for around 18 months – and there we were dopey old Farnham residents believing our air quality issues were not as bad as we first thought. Because that’s what we were told. Waverley have AQR reports up until 2015 only.
It doesn’t say anything in the Press Release that the council held an Emergency Meeting, because of course it either wasn’t webcast, or if it was, the webcast wasn’t working. Even if it was working, we wouldn’t have heard anything, because they don’t intend us too. Because we’re the voting fodder, and secrecy is endemic at ‘YW’.
It also begs the question? Can we believe anything we hear, like the flood risk assessments, highway assessments, noise and pollution assessments that are carried out in our borough?
The Bias Factor is a technically term for extrapolating the results from these monitoring stations and tubes accounting for temperature and how that affects to NO2 calculation.
