£297,000 government funding for York air quality project

March 17, 2021

Julian has welcomed the award of £297,237 from the Department of the Environment’s Air Quality Grant Scheme to City of York Council.

This funding will pay for an examination of how to reduce pollution from goods vehicles. There will be a feasibility study on lowering emissions from first and ‘last mile’ light goods deliveries, and a pilot for a micro-consolidation centre, where products can be dropped off outside the city centre and transported into central York by less polluting means.

Julian said: “I am really glad to hear the government are making this valuable project possible by providing this new money, which could have really positive future results for local public health and the environment.

As a busy community and employment centre, it is important York pays close attention to vehicle emissions and air quality through measures like this.

The new funding continues a welcome trend of government investment in our city’s infrastructure and public services, and I will continue to press Ministers to ensure York’s various needs are met in full.”
