Emissions Reduction Proposal

Joint report of the Remembrancer and the Director of Markets &  Consumer Protection.


The Committee considered a joint report of the Director of Markets & Consumer Protection, and the Remembrancer concerning a series of proposals to improve local air quality in the City and London as a whole.


In answer to a question it was confirmed that no fines for stationary idling had been issued to date.


Reference was made to the limits imposed in respect of gas boilers, solid fuel burners, and combined heat and power to not affect current installations. It was suggested that this was insufficient and that any Bill should also seek to require operators of such systems already in place to at least maintain them to the specifications they were capable of. This would significantly aid efforts to limit emissions across London.


RESOLVED: That the principles outlined in the report be endorsed and that authority be granted for officers to consult with the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, the Greater London Authority, London Boroughs and other interested parties, and to seek the assent of London Councils.
