Decision Maker: Environment and Climate Change Committee
Decision status: Recommendations Approved
It is a requirement of DEFRA that all local authorities in England produce an Annual Status Report (ASR) in respect of air quality. This is intended to aid local transparency, increase accessibility of air quality to the wider public audience and encourage buy-in to delivering air quality improvement measures by those best placed to assist. Members discussed the ASR recently submitted by Broxtowe.
There was currently no local equipment to monitor air quality. It was hoped that local areas would work together to purchase this. The Committee discussed how residents could be encouraged to walk and cycle more.
RESOLVED that the 2020 Air Quality Status Report be approved for submission to DEFRA.
