Histon & Impington Neighbourhood Plan - Submission consultation

Representation:

I would like our vision to also include a commitment to clean air / reduced air pollution and to reducing greenhouse emissions (reducing climate impact) for a healthy community.

This could inform a number of decisions including:
1) Enforcement of no idling of cars, coaches or buses anywhere near our nurseries or schools

2) Access routes to schools and nurseries are designed in a way that encourages walking or cycling and avoids exposing children to air pollution

3) I support the focus on better cycle routes

4) New development should be assessed in terms of air quality / climate impact

Re our Vision and Priorities

I would like our vision to also include a commitment to clear air / reduced air pollution and to reducing greenhouse emissions (reducing climate impact).

I would like there to be enforcement of no idling of cars, coaches or buses anywhere near our nurseries or schools with a focus on cleaner air for our children and all of us. All vehicles should be required to turn off engines if stopped for any period of time within 200m of a school / nursery building and this should be marked on the roads and actively enforced.

I support the recommendations for improved cycle routes.

We should also ensure that school / nursery building location and design protects children from poor air quality and that access routes to schools and nurseries are designed in a way that encourages walking or cycling and avoids exposing children to air pollution - i.e. identifying alternative access routes that avoid busy roads.

New development should be assessed in terms of air quality / climate impact
