Air quality in Bromley
Whilst certain modelled data shows that Bromley may be the greenest and least polluted of all London boroughs, we know that poor air quality is associated with a number of adverse health impacts; it is recognised as a contributing factor in the onset of heart disease and cancer.
Additionally, air pollution particularly affects the most vulnerable in society: children and older people, and those with heart and lung conditions.
To address poor air quality, Bromley declared an Air Quality Management in the borough for Nitrogen Dioxide in 2006, this was extended in 2020 to incorporate a wider area. Air Quality Area Management map.
Following a period of consultation and with approval from the Greater London Authority, we have now published our new Air Quality Action Plan (AQAP) which provides a comprehensive overview of how we will continue to make progress in improving air quality in Bromley from 2020 to 2025.
