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.
