Decision details

Adoption of York’s Third Air Quality Action Plan (AQAP3)

Decision Maker: Decision Session - Executive Member for Environment and Climate Change

Decision status: Recommendations approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes

Purpose:

Purpose of Report: To adopt York’s Third Air Quality Action Plan (AQAP3) following public consultation and amendments.

The Executive Member is asked to adopt the report and amendments.

Having formally received the views of the Economic Development and Transport Policy and Scrutiny Committee Pre Decision Call In Committee which had met immediately prior to his decision making session on 18 November, the Executive Member felt that more time was needed to respond to and address the implications associated with the comments made by scrutiny members. He agreed to receive a further report at a decision session to be held in December which would address those issues raised by scrutiny members. This meeting will take place at 4pm on Monday 14 December.

 

Decision:

The Executive Member considered a report which presented him with the final draft of York’s Third Air Quality Action Plan (AQAP3), summarised the results of the public consultation and provided an update on new evidence relating to air quality and public health.

 

The Executive Member formally received the views of the Economic Development and Transport Policy and Scrutiny Committee Pre Decision Call In Committee which had met prior to his decision making session. He appreciated that the committee was largely supportive of the plan as drafted but that it had made a number of comments which it would like him to take into account before approving the plan.  In view of the significance of the plan, the Executive Member felt that more time was needed to respond to and address the implications associated with the comments made by the scrutiny committee. He was therefore minded to request a further report covering those comments which related to:

economic viability; affordability; green infrastructure; an implementation plan; delivery targets and to the specific comments circulated by Councillor D’Agorne in advance of the meeting.

 

Resolved:   That a further decision session be arranged in December to consider a report addressing the comments set out above made by the pre-decision scrutiny committee together with their implications.

 

Reason:      To enable a full report to be considered reviewing the issues and their implications.
