The Committee received a report from the Pollution Control Specialist updating on air quality issues with the Committee’s Air Quality Management Areas (AQMA) and the progress against the Committee’s Air Quality Action Plan (AQAP).
It was acknowledged that COVID-19 had had a significant impact on the team’s ability to carry out some of the actions in the plan but had had a positive impact on the air quality as less people were travelling by car during the lockdowns.
RESOLVED – That the Eastleigh Local Area Committee noted:
(1) the final air quality measurements for Eastleigh in 2020; and
(2) progress made against the Air Quality Action Plan.
[NOTE: One member of the public addressed the Committee about the report citing concerns regarding the accuracy of the data, speed of uploads onto the website and source apportionment.]
