Cleaner Machinery for London

In July 2014 the Mayor of London released a supplementary planning guidance (SPG) for The Control of Dust and Emissions during Construction and Demolition which aims to manage emissions of particulate matter (PM) and nitrogen oxides (NOx) from construction and demolition.

The SPG also outlined the new emission standard requirements for the world’s first low emission zone (LEZ) for non-road mobile machinery (NRMM) which came into effect on September 1st 2015.

The London Low Emission Construction Partnership ran a 'Cleaner Machinery for London' event at City Hall on February 3rd 2017 to raise awareness of the air quality and health impacts of emissions from NRMM as well as allow direct feedback to the GLA about the policy and register.
