Air quality is one of the biggest issues we face and tackling poor air quality is a priority for Kingston Council. Poor air quality has life long impacts on our health - air pollution kills c9000 Londoners every year. It contributes to dementia and alzheimers, and children in the highest polluted areas of one London Borough lose two eggs worth of lung capacity by the time they are 9 years old and this damage is irreversible.

Together, with our residents, we have drafted an Air Quality Action Plan that sets out the actions that the Council will take with partners and communities over the next five years to improve air quality in the borough and mitigate the impact of the greatest environmental threat to health in the UK.

The Draft Air Quality Action Plan can be found in the documents section of this page.

It is intended that each action in the plan will be implemented over time. Some will be quicker while others may take longer to come to fruition but each action contributes to the overall improvement in air quality across the borough for everyone.

We want to know what you think of the plan - please take a look at the Draft Air Quality Action Plan and let us know your comments via the short survey below.
