Agenda Item 61(b)




Brighton & Hove City Council





A period of not more than fifteen minutes shall be allowed at each ordinary meeting for questions submitted by a member of the public.


The question will be answered without discussion. The person who asked the question may ask one relevant supplementary question, which shall be put and answered without discussion. The person to whom a question, or supplementary question, has been put may decline to answer it. 


The following written questions have been received from members of the public:



(i)           Pollution – Adrian Hill


1000 new apartments have been approved or built in areas where pollution exceeds legal limits exposing more people.  Large buildings next to busy roads can also increase pollution because of reduced air flow and increased congestion.  Will you ensure the pollution control advice and rules detailed in city plan SU9 and LAQM2020 are being checked?  Also will you agree to better scrutinise and understand the limited regulations of the developer funded AQ assessments submitted with building plans?  eg ‘it was not possible to locate the [diffusion tube] on Google Streetview’ isn’t an acceptable means of excluding evidence of illegal pollution.
