Air Quality Action Plan


The Air Quality Action Plan (AQAP) for Swaffham is signed off as complete and can now be submitted to the Department of the Environment Food and Regional Affairs (Defra) in fulfilment of Part IV of the Environment Act 1995 Local Air Quality Management requirements.

Reasons for the decision:

The attached Air Quality Action Plan addressing air quality issues in Swaffham has been consulted upon both with members of the public and surrounding local authorities/appropriate authorities as required under the legislation.  Comments have been made and these have been included within the consultation responses and used to amend the plan where appropriate.


The plan and background information where reported to Cabinet on 1 May 2018 and authorisation was delegated to the Executive Member for People and Information to approve and release the plan once it had been passed through final formal consultation and it has been reviewed by the Overview & Scrutiny Commission (OSC) and Swaffham District Council Members in September 2018 and no additional comments or amendments were requested.


The plan is therefore considered as complete and is recommended for sign off and submission to Defra by the Executive Member for People & Information.
