Healthy School Streets- a public health approach to infrastructure on highways and air quality monitoring

This report seeks approval to start a programme of low level infrastructure improvements on the public highway around schools, undertake air quality audits for a number of schools who are in areas of poor air quality (of which there are 28), install air quality monitors and deliver an education programme to schools about the projects with a focus on STEMs. This would be the first year of the programme, with further reports for future years to recommend and apply mitigations for all schools on the list. The programme will report back to the Cabinet member and there will be continuous monitoring. This is a joint programme working with colleagues in Public Health and Education.
