Share views on air quality

By Jamie Shapiro, Local Democracy Reporter

exhaust pipePeople in Southampton are being given a chance to have their say on how to improve the city’s air quality.



Southampton City Council has put together a questionnaire to get feedback from locals about the authority’s draft action plan to tackle pollution.

It follows a public engagement exercise launched by the council earlier this year to see how it could improve air quality.

Results from the consultation were used to formulate the draft proposals.

The draft lists the authority’s key areas of focus, which includes:

• Southampton Cycle Network
• Shore-side electric facilities
• Personal travel planning service for residents
• Air pollution forecasting and alert service
• Air quality integrated as a key element of the Local Transport Plan
• Air quality planning guidance
• School travel plans
• Council fleet improvement
• Rail gauge enhancements
• Millbrook roundabout improvements
• Bus quality partnership

The survey can be filled out on the council’s website. It runs until July 28.
