Ikea claims Greenwich store ‘would improve air quality’

Furniture giant Ikea claims its proposed Greenwich store would improve air quality in the local area, according to documents sent to Greenwich Council.

But its detailed figures show any improvement would be “negligible”, while pollution would actually get slightly worse at Greenwich Millennium Village.

I think a serious bid to the local assembly for 10 Air Quality Eggs (about £120 each) around the area, monitored from residents homes would be an interesting proposition.

    Yeah meanwhile they’re apparently going to destroy the little nature area at the back of Sainsbury’s, which won’t exactly help the local environment. How about re-creating it elsewhere on the Peninsula? Does anyone know if this is really just going to be lost just like that?
