Air Quality Management

Air quality management

We adopted the Northampton Low Emission Strategy (NLES) in December 2017 which forms part of the Northampton Air Quality Action Plan

The NLES lays out key objectives for improving air quality in Northampton.

  • Measures to reduce road transport emissions
  • Encouraging collective acceleration of the uptake of Ultra Low Emission Vehicles via a Vehicle Emission Framework Plan
  • Facilitation of a degree of charging infrastructure with various partner organisations   

The NLES includes technical guidance on air quality and land use planning for the purposes of development control.

Where failures of the Environment Act 1995 are identified, an action plan will usually be put in place to tackle the problems identified.
