Over 500 adults voted in the Pollution Poll in the Cathedral close on 2 October 2016. Everyone could vote for two choices out of eight possible ways to make the air cleaner in Winchester town centre - or they could vote for "Keep things as they are - pollution isn't a worry for me".

97% of over 1000 votes were in favour of doing something.
