A plan to enhance the lives of residents in Havering by improving air quality has been given the green light by Havering Council.
A new Air Quality Action plan will see Havering Council carry out work to improve local air quality between 2018 and 2023.
The plan includes a focus on hotspots identified in the borough and support for residents to be able to protect themselves at times when pollution levels are high.
Councillor Viddy Persaud, cabinet member for public protection and safety, said: “We want Havering to become an even greener borough than it already is.
“Our priority is to protect and provide ways in which residents can continue to lead healthy and happy lives and part of that is improving the air in which they breathe.
“We have taken into consideration what residents have told us and aim to carry out what is needed to improve air quality.”
