Issue details

Addressing air quality and traffic management issues through the management of parking behaviour on the highway

Outline proposals which are intended to improve air quality by ensuring nitrogen dioxide (NO2) targets are met in the shortest possible time through a major shift to mass transport, walking and cycling in order to secure the safer movement of pedestrian traffic on the highway by reducing the public health risks posed to them by air pollution. This will facilitate the achievement of strategic outcomes of local transport policy by reducing congestion and vehicle intrusion into neighbourhoods, and particularly residential neighbourhoods. Whilst the measures proposed are designed to improve air quality and meet traffic management and pedestrian safety purposes it is also anticipated they will also significantly reduce the level of emissions that drive climate change.
