Labour Launches its Green City Charter

Labour’s Clean Air Strategy implemented in 2016 has seen pollution levels reduce by up to 24% in parts of the city.
The recent Clean Air Zone consultation showed there is widespread support for the Council to go further in cleaning up the air we breathe.
Labour has submitted a £6m business case to Government, as it was required to do, about a package of non charging measures that will continue the comprehensive approach to delivering clean air across the city.

The Tory Government has dragged its feet on tackling toxic air. Our Labour Council believes that the interest shown in the Consultation gives us a mandate to launch a bold and radical plan called the ‘Green City Charter’ which will include the most ambitious pollution reduction targets ever introduced by a council voluntarily in the UK. Labour has initiated talks with the Port, businesses, Schools and Community Groups so that everyone in the city understands the importance of the challenge to our climate and works together for the benefit of people’s health. Partnership working is an essential part of the strategy. Councils cannot act on their own.
