Securing Emission Reductions in Wigan

October 2011


Wigan Local Development Framework - Development and Air Quality Supplementary Planning DocumentWigan Council has been continuing to apply the requirements of their adopted 'Development and Air Quality' Supplementary Planning Document.

Recent approved developments (including offices, a quarry and supermarkets) have secured emission reductions through, BREEAM standards, cycle and pedestrian infrastructure and facilities, travel plans, bus services, construction emission reduction measures and agreements for contribution funding for Air Quality Action Plan measures. The Council is also currently carrying out a public consultation on transport issues, visit www.wigan.gov.uk/onthemove for more information. The adoption of a new transport strategy for the Borough, together with an action plan, will help to prioritise resources and influence decisions to secure transport improvements through to 2026. Air quality and climate change are important factors within the consultation documents and will form key components of the final strategy document. This new document, together with the adopted SPD will result in a more co-ordinated approach to tackling local transport based air quality/emission issues across the borough.

For more information, contact Paul Cartmell at Wigan Council.
