Air Quality consultation
The Council is consulting to get feedback and your ideas on improving air quality in Bath.
The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) and Department for Transport published their ‘UK plan for tackling roadside nitrogen dioxide concentrations’ on 26th July 2017. The content of this plan takes into account that for the first time, Bath and North East Somerset is listed as an authority upon which the Government has placed legal duties on to ‘develop and implement a plan designed to deliver compliance in the shortest time possible’. This plan may include a Clean Air Zone (CAZ) or other measures if they can deliver compliance as quickly as a CAZ. The responses from this consultation will be used to inform the feasibility study work for the government.
You are also invited to any of the following drop-in events to discuss potential measures of the action plan with officers:
- 1pm-4pm Wednesday 18th October, Twerton Village Hall;
- 10-2pm Friday 27th October, SAINSBURY'S (Green Park);
- 5-7pm Thursday 2nd November, MORRISONS (London Road);
