Smell and symptom tracker

We are asking people who live near to Walleys Quarry, to share valuable information with us to help better understand and monitor the impact that Walleys Quarry is having on residents health.

We are asking residents to complete a simple questionnaire, on a daily basis, to inform us of the symptoms they are experiencing, as a result of Walleys Quarry. We recommend that residents complete the questionnaire on an evening, reflecting on the previous 24 hour period. By completing the questionnaire over a period of time, we can build up a better picture of the situation.

The questionnaire asks for your personal information, to allow us to understand how different people may be being affected differently, and also to understand whether symptoms are getting worse.

Your right to privacy is very important to us and we recognise that, when we collect, use, or store your personal data, you should be able to trust us to act in a responsible manner. Please see our privacy notice, which tells you what you can expect when we process your data, and what your rights are.
