Action I2: Air quality and noise improvement

Support the improvement of the Air Quality Management Area (AQMA) by providing real time air quality (and noise) information across the city. Explore validity of low emission zones with policy makers based on a 12 month pilot. Make information about air and noise pollution available to planners and policy makers linking it to health information. The data could be made available to citizens, based on real-time and historic data, via an app.
