The draft Air Quality Action Plan (AQAP)
Air pollution is a real issue that is having serious impacts on our health. It is associated with several adverse health impacts and it is recognised as a contributing factor in the onset of heart disease and cancer. Additionally, air pollution particularly affects the most vulnerable in society: children and older people, and those with heart and lung conditions. There is also often a strong correlation with equalities issues, because areas with poor air quality are often less affluent areas.
The draft Air Quality Action Plan (AQAP) has been produced as part of the London Local Air Quality Management System, a statutory process by which boroughs monitor, assess and take actions to tackle pollution. The plan outlines the actions that will be taken to improve air quality in Haringey between 2019-2024, under the following seven broad topics:
- Monitoring and other core statutory duties
- Missions from developments and buildings
- Public health and awareness raising
- Delivery servicing and freight
- Borough fleet actions
- Localised solutions which seek to improve the environment of neighbourhoods through a combination of measures
- Leaner transport
However, we need to ensure that these actions meet the needs of those who live, work, attend schools and play in Haringey - this is why we consulted with you.
