Feedback has come from representatives that many aspects could be improved. We’ve heard of the council’s plans around these topics and about general changes to Soho. We are trying to think about how to future proof improvements in these areas, although this is very difficult to do. Areas chosen for further attention are: Air Quality Greening Recycling Sound Levels We are exploring what local projects to deal with these concerns could be funded by the Community Infrastructure … Continue reading Improving Soho’s environment
