East Suffolk Council adopts new Air Quality Strategy

The drive for clean air and minimal pollution in East Suffolk has taken a step forward with the adoption of a new council Air Quality Strategy after being unanimously approved by the authority’s Cabinet.

Bringing together current policies and initiatives which have an impact on air quality, it will now become an integrated part of the council’s decision-making, meaning that air quality will be a major consideration on a local and strategic level going forward.

It supports East Suffolk Council’s vision of building environmentally sustainable communities in the district.

This includes enabling sustainable travel options, delivering more educational campaigns, promoting eco-friendly developments and becoming carbon neutral by 2030.

Commenting, East Suffolk Council’s Cabinet Member for the Environment, Councillor James Mallinder said:

“Everyone has a right to breathe clean air and the adoption of this new strategy is just another example of East Suffolk Council’s drive and commitment to improve air quality in the district and build the right environment for our communities.

“Poor air quality has a negative impact on our lives and health, and the council will always seek to make improvements where necessary.

“Whilst the air quality in East Suffolk generally is very good, exceeding the government’s expectations, we will continue our efforts to reduce air pollution and positively impact the quality of life of our residents.”
