Air quality in Newham

Improving air quality in Newham

We measure our success against national aims, and the law says we must have a plan of action to improve in areas where we do not meet these aims.  

The Air Quality Management Area and the Air Quality Action Plan

Our action plan is based on an Air quality review and assessment (PDF). The review was a five-year project to measure air quality. It shows that in some areas in Newham pollution levels were too high. So, we made a plan to control pollution in these areas.
