Our updated Local Plan needs to ensure development in Lambeth contributes to improving air quality. Complete the air quality survey.
We know poor air quality in Lambeth is detrimental to health, particularly for older people, children, those with heart and lung conditions and those living in areas with higher levels of deprivation.
Lambeth is required by government, national planning policy and the Mayor of London to monitor air pollution in the borough and must meet the EU limits for a number of known air pollutants. We adopted our Air Quality Action Plan in May 2017, setting out the priorities for improving air quality in the borough and launched our Better Air campaign. A new Local Plan policy on air quality is a key action.
The updated Local Plan needs to address air pollution caused by the construction and operation of residential and commercial buildings in the borough and set out how developers should mitigate the negative impacts of their development on air quality. This policy will work alongside other policies that contribute to improving air quality, such as transport, green infrastructure and waste.
