Local Air Quality Strategy and Action Plan

Our Local Air Quality Strategy and Action Plan sets out clear aims how the Council, working with partners, will look to improve the air quality in South Tyneside.

This strategy will deliver a number of benefits. It will:

  • emphasise the Council's role in delivering cleaner air
  • help to tackle air quality in a holistic way
  • help to build and strengthen partnerships with businesses, the community and external stakeholders
  • build for the future by promoting economic regeneration that recognises air quality as a major consideration at an early stage
  • highlight the reasons for tackling poor air quality, such as the links to health, quality of life and climate change
  • raise the profile of air quality in South Tyneside
