3. Air quality action plan

This plan explains what we are doing to reduce levels of nitrogen dioxide within the air quality management area. The plan was published in 2011 and runs until 2016. We report on progress every year. All these documents, and a short summary of the plan are available to download below:

As part of the Air Quality Action Plan, we have produced a Low Emissions Strategy for Exeter 2015-2018. This sets out ways that we can reduce the impact of local transport on air quality, climate change and the health of the people of Exeter with our partners.



Air quality strategy

We have an air quality strategy which describes all the actions we will take regarding air quality. This describes:

  • how we will monitor air pollution
  • handle complaints about air quality
  • regulate potentially polluting businesses
  • and respond to planning applications that could affect air quality
