Sutton Air Quality Management Area Order 2009

Closed 29 Jan 2010

Opened 17 Dec 2009


The Council intends to make the the Sutton Air Quality Management Order 2009 and this will have two effects: 1 - Following a detailed review and assessment in 2008 it appears that we are unlikely to meet our target for air quality (the annual mean value for nitrogen dioxide) on three roads in the borough. These are Stanley Park Road, The Broadway Cheam and Ewell Road Cheam. The order will make each of these roads an air quality management area. 2 - The Beddington Lane industrial area will become an air quality management area. The council considers that the increasing number of waste management sites in the area represent significant potential sources of pollution in the area. By making an air quality management area order we will be able to strenghten the council's development control powers and the powers of the Environment Agency.

Why your views matter

The Council has a statutory duty (under the Environment Act 1995) to consult all relevant stakeholders when making an air quality management order and wants to hear the views of all consultees.

What happens next

The Council will consider the views of all consultees, and addresses any concerns they may have. It is intended that the Order will come into force no later than 1st March 2010
