Draft Air Quality Action Plan consultation extended

Published Monday, 27 July 2020

Consultation about the draft air quality action plan is being extended by two weeks to allow more time for responses to come forwards.

The deadline for final responses is now Monday 10 August and residents and other interested groups are being encouraged to consider the proposals to improve air quality and complete the survey.

Councillor William Huntington-Thresher, Executive Councillor for Environment and Community Services said, “We have already had a pleasing number of responses to the consultation which we welcome and if anyone has not yet responded, there is still time should they wish.  The air quality data shows that Bromley’s air quality has improved year on year since 2010 which is positive but we want to address concerns where we can, with the draft plan setting out further air quality improvements.”

Councillor Huntington-Thresher continued, “I would like to thank everyone who has already responded to the consultation.  We have no wish to delay the implementation of this proposed programme and are firmly focussed on agreeing the plan and moving forwards with the actions.”

Further information can be found on the council's website about air quality locally, including the proposed Air Quality Action Plan for 2020–2025 and the online consultation.
