Slough Air Quality Action Plan 2024-2028

Closes 27 Apr 2024

Opened 15 Mar 2024

Overview

Slough Borough Council are consulting on a draft Air Quality Action Plan (AQAP), which sets out the measures the Council intends to take between 2024 and 2028 to address poor air quality within the borough. This consultation is for all people who work, live, study and visit the Slough borough area.

The action plan outlines an ambition to achieve a boroughwide nitrogen dioxide target concentration of <35μg/m3 by 2028, and to revoke all of Slough Borough Council’s Air Quality Management Areas (AQMAs) by 2030. This will be achieved by implementing a suite of measures which fall into the following three broad categories:

Environment – focusing on emission management and reduction of emissions at the source

Transport – focusing on traffic management and infrastructure to support people to choose more sustainable travel methods over private vehicle use  

Health Education & Awareness – focusing on improving the air quality knowledge base across the borough

The summary Air Quality Action Plan is embedded below and is also available to download at the bottom of this page, along with the full Air Quality Action Plan report.
