A breath of fresh air for Brighton & Hove

Brighton & Hove City Council consults on its Air Quality Action Plan (AQAP).

Required under the Environmental Act 1995, the AQAP has been produced in response to the identified Nitrogen Dioxide exceedences and subsequent declaration of the Air Quality Management Area (AQMA). The purpose of the Action Plan is to identify a package of measures that will reduce levels of Nitrogen Dioxide in both the AQMA and the wider city.

The results of the council's air quality work has shown that the primary source of local air pollution is from road traffic. Therefore, many of the measures within the action plan have been drawn up specifically to target transport in the city and are included in the Local Transport Plan 2005/6- 2010/11 (LTP2).

Some of these key proposals in the LTP2 are in the very early stages and as a result there is an opportunity to tie air quality measures into the LTP2 development process.

Some of these measures include.

  • Urban Realm Developments (including the Valley Garden Improvements)
  • Rapid Transport System 
  • Bus Quality Partnerships
  • Travel Planning
  • Travel Campaigns and Education

Other Action Plan measures not included in the LTP2 include:

  • Roadside Emissions Testing
  • Emissions grant scheme with the Energy Saving Trust 
  • Idling emissions enforcement and signage
  • Pollution monitoring projects with local schools
  • Air Alert text service
  • Informative publications and talks/lectures

The Action Plan is now subject to an eight week consultation which ends on May 21 2007.   Please follow the link below for details on the consultation process and the consultation questions.
