1st Annual (2018)

Air Quality Forum

Implementing solutions through integrated planning and transport to improve air quality in the UK
Thursday 01 March 2018 Arup, Central London
The Air Quality Forum will provide essential insight and allow attendees to share experiences on how to improve air quality and reduce emissions. Attendees will explore the practical short and long term solutions which can be introduced and managed through the integrated efforts and responses of planning, transport and health.

Highlights of attending:

  • Explore how to introduce a joined-up targeted response to improve air quality though integration of both planning and transport
  • Understand how the planning system can support the reduction of emissions including considering the use of planning guidance and available mitigation measures
  • Explore how to coordinate response and introduce practical solutions with limited resources in the most cost effective way
  • Hear how to plan for and anticipate changing technologies including the rise of electric vehicles
  • Explore how to have a holistic and consistent response to air quality at authority, county and national level

Informative and relevant to discussion on problems faced in relation to air quality and planning.

Why should I attend?

Not only to meet national targets but to also respond to growing public and health pressure, there is an ever growing need to introduce targeted solutions to respond to increasingly worsening air quality across the whole of the UK, not just in the largest cities. This event explores how to introduce a consistent, targeted strategy through integration of planning, transport and environmental health.

Attend to share insight and experience on how to improve air quality, through cost effective, practical solutions that are appropriate for your area. Attend to explore how to identify problem areas and introduce target responses. Some of the issues the day will consider include the need and effect of introducing supplementary planning guidance, how to obtain accurate air quality information through monitoring, and available mitigation measures.

Learn how to plan for evolving technologies that could decrease emissions, including the electric car, and how to introduce active travel measures, as the day considers both the long and short term solutions that can be implemented.

Who will I meet?

Companies who should attend include:

  • National and local government representatives
  • Local authorities – planning and health teams
  • Air quality, planning and transport consultants
  • Developers
  • Technology providers
