(Report of Director of Planning, Housing and Environmental Health)
With six declared Air Quality Management Areas (AQMA), the Council has a statutory duty to keep updated an Air Quality Action Plan to outline the actions it would take to reduce concentrations of the pollutant of concern in the AQMA’s so that they can all eventually be revoked. Identified actions were proposed up to 2026 to tackle Nitrogen Dioxide, primarily within the remaining AQMA’s, but also across the Borough as a whole.
Following consideration by the Street Scene and Environment Services Advisory Board, the Cabinet Member for Environment and Climate Change resolved that:
(1) subject to any further amendments from DEFRA, the Air Quality Action Plan as set out in full at Annex 1, be endorsed.
