Agenda Item 5(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:



(1)          Air pollution – Adrian Hill


Ella Kissi-Deborah’s prevention of future deaths report said ‘Delay in reducing the levels of atmospheric air pollution is the cause of avoidable deaths.'

We in Brighton suffer illegal air pollution with NO2 just as high as Ella was exposed to.  I’m right in concluding this prevention of future deaths report by the coroner applies to Brighton just as much as it does to London.

Can I have an update on the urgent changes that are required such as Clean Air Zone, diesel buses, trams and preventing new building configurations that make pollution dispersal and exposure worse?
