Dear Kirklees Borough Council,

Thank you for providing the information requested, however, the files sent only relate to the traffic data, while the response said it included air quality reports, presumably they were simply overlooked in the attachment sent, if not the case, could you clarify their location.

Yours faithfully,

Alan Garvin
