Merton Council

Draft Air Quality Supplementary Planning Document


The purpose of the SPD (Supplementary Planning Document) is to help developers, decision makers, agents, residents and other interested parties to identify issues to be addressed in any development proposal application in which air quality will be important. It applies to development that may have an impact on air quality such as all major development, any development (including conversions) that introduces new exposure into areas of poor air quality; and smaller development that may emit odours, dust, smoke, and other fumes, for example, commercial kitchens and construction of basement developments. The SPD provides more detail to relevant policies in our Local Plan and does not introduce new policies.
