Clean Air Day 16 June 2022

Clean Air Day is the UK’s largest air pollution campaign, bringing together communities, businesses, schools, and the health sector to raise awareness of how air quality affects our health and the environment. Every year, air pollution is responsible for 36,000 deaths in the UK and in recent years the air pollution in London has been recorded at ‘illegal’ levels.

Fixing the Cladding Issue at Orchard Village

Jon Cruddas MP received confirmation from Clarion, the housing association that owns and manages Orchard Village in south Hornchurch, of their plans to deal with fire safety issues on the estate.

Clarion are engaging a specialist contractor to remove cladding and other potentially flammable materials from the external areas of the apartment block buildings on Orchard Village. The work is planned to commence in July and may take up to two years to fully complete.
