The Rushcliffe area of Nottinghamshire, to the south and east of Nottingham City Centre is asking residents for their views on an Air Quality Action Plan.
It includes asking for feedback on plans around the Trent Bridge and Stragglethorpe Road junctions, which have had emissions monitored for years and is now below the threshold for NO2 after ten years of air quality management.
The Council’s new plan covers the period up to April 2026 to reduce concentrations of and exposure to air pollution.
Its plan is to continue to monitor nitrogen dioxide levels at AQMA No1 Trent Bridge Stragglethorpe Road and to revoke them (in consultation with Defra) if and when there is sufficient robust data to demonstrate concentrations are well below the air quality standard objectives for a period
of four to five years, to work with Nottinghamshire County Council to implement relevant actions at Trent Bridge to manage traffic volume and flow and enable residents to “make smarter travel choices” and and continue to work with partners to actively promote policies to encourage an increased use of low emission travel options and secure funding for a publicly accessible vehicle charging network.
