A town in the Forest of Dean with air quality issues has been given a cash grant to carry out traffic surveys.
Earlier this year, levels of nitrogen dioxide in Lydney were found to be above national safety levels.
The Forest of Dean District Council has received £44,000 from Defra to carry out traffic surveys and work up possible solutions for the town.
Environmental health officers applied for the money to help develop an Air Quality Action Plan for the area.
Councillor Martin Quaile said the authority was pleased with the amount of feedback it had received from a consultation into managing the problem of traffic emissions in High Street, Newerne Street and Bream Road.
