In 2017, the Healthy Communities Policy Advisory Group received an update on air quality where it was noted that further additional monitoring in the Iver area was required to confirm the requirement for an Air Quality Management Area (AQMA).
Upon conclusion of the additional monitoring, the findings were debated at the PAG of 22nd February 2018 where 3 options for an AQMA were considered, with a recommendation for a parish wide AQMA being taken forward to formal consultation. This consultation ran from the 1st March to the 31st March 2018.
Over 90% of respondents agreed that the boundary should be aligned with the Parish Boundary, However, in light of two supplementary responses, the matter returned back to the PAG on the 12th June 2018 to allow the full range of consultation responses to be considered by Members. At this PAG after further careful consideration it was agreed that the parish wide AQMA remained the best option based on local circumstances to present to Cabinet for approval.
RESOLVED that an AQMA be declared based on the Iver Parish boundary as consulted upon under section 83 (1) of the Environment Act 1995 with the final wording of the necessary order be delegated to the Head of Legal & Democratic Services.
