Results Updated 22 Jan 2018

Thank you to all those who responded to the Air Quality Action Plan consultation.

There were a large number of responses, which are currently being considered by the Council, and the draft plan is being amended in response to the feedback received. When finalised the updated Air Quality Action Plan will be published on this page.


The London Borough of Richmond upon Thames accepts that poor air quality in the borough is a major cause of concern for our residents, businesses and visitors. As such, we are committed to tackling this problem as a priority for the borough.
We have produced a new Air Quality Action Plan that builds on existing successes and develops new actions to improve air quality. A copy of the new plan is attached below.
As part of the process for implementing this plan we are seeking the views of our partners and other public organisations that have an influence in tackling this problem. 
We particularly welcome the views of our residents, businesses and visitors to the borough. There are also key resident groups that we would like to hear from and see where we can work together to tackle this problem. 
The Air Quality Action Plan outlines key areas of policy, the need for an action plan, the levels and sources of pollution in the borough and more importantly proposes a number of measures we can take as an authority to reduce poor air quality. The areas these proposed measures relate to are:
  • Emissions from Developments and Buildings
  • Public Health and Awareness
  • Delivery Servicing and Freight
  • Borough Fleet Action
  • Localised Solutions
  • Cleaner Transport in the Borough

Please read the Air Quality Action Plan before completing the survey. You can access the online survey below, but if you would like a paper copy, please contact us at

Following the consultation, all feedback will be taken into account by the Cabinet Member for Environment, Business, and Community.

Please be advised that this consultation closes on Monday 30 October 2017.
