Let's Clear the Air

External study

Last year 23 local authorities across the country, including Fareham, were identified as having areas likely to exceed guideline levels of nitrogen dioxide. The study was carried out by the Department of Transport's Joint Air Quality Unit (JAQU). The conclusions of the discussions is included in the technical report of the latest Air Quality Plan 2017. External Hyperlink

The aims for our Let's Clear the Air Together consultation

The health and wellbeing of everyone living and working in Fareham is important to the Council. The external study has unveiled a small exceedance level increase of 0.9ugm3 above the 40ugm3 limit expected for 2020. The Council's aim is to ensure the level does not exceed the 40ugm3 limit by introducing a series of measures.

By working with key partners, for example Hampshire County Council, the Council has identified a series of 11 measures which will help reduce levels of nitrogen dioxide.  We would like residents and commuters into the area to comment on the measures or put forward new ideas. 

What happens next?

The consultation closed on 15th October the Council are now analysing the results and will review any changes needed to our proposals. As the measures will be funded by Government, we will then submit the revised proposals, which form the basis of the Council's business case, to the Government for approval by the end of the year.
