    Air quality in Warrington does not seem to be very high in Warrington Borough Council's priorities. A recent report by Manchester University called Setting Climate Commitments for Warrington indicates that the Council's Local Plan and its Transport Plan, known as LTP4, are in breach of the commitments enshrined in the 2015 Paris Agreement.
