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.
We have produced a draft Air Quality Action Plan 2020-2025. This has been produced as part of our statutory duties as an Air Quality Management Area has been declared in the borough. This is required by the Greater London Authority (GLA) under the London Local Air Quality Management (LLAQM) statutory process.

Consultation on the draft Air Quality Action Plan (AQAP)
Our proposed plan outlines the actions that we will take to improve air quality in the London Borough of Bromley between 2020-2025. Schedule 11 of the Environment Act 1995 requires us to consider any representations made in accordance with the consultation.
We undertook a consultation on the draft Air Quality Action Plan 2020-2025. The consultation ran from 25 June to 10 August 2020.
The consultation is now closed - thank you to everyone who took part..
The feedback provided through the consultation process is being considered alongside the draft AQAP. Once various processes, including consideration by the Environment Policy Development Scrutiny Committee have been completed, the final version of the Air Quality Action Plan will be published on the website.
