Clean air

Clean air is essential for good quality of life, yet people living in our urban centres may be exposed to potentially harmful levels of pollutants. As part of Our Green City we will take actions to reduce emissions and improve the quality of life in Southampton.

These actions show our commitment to meeting and maintaining compliance with national air quality objectives. Actions have focused on road transport, the largest contributor to poor air quality.

We have adopted a new Air Quality Action Plan, setting out what further measures we'll implement and explore over the next five years.
