Croydon Council wanted a simple way to take action on air quality issues at the new development on Wandle Road. They didn’t want the 25-storey block of residential flats that will which will bring 128 new homes in central Croydon to start construction with a negative impact on the local community. However, the team at Croydon was over-stretched and under-resourced. Having worked with the EMSOL system before at Queen’s Square, they knew it could provide specific, granular evidence to support enforcement.
Croydon Council has been at the forefront of investments to manage environmental impact. With EMSOL they knew that they could deliver on their ambition to deliver a clean environment in the borough. Construction sites have long monitored pollution, but with EMSOL the enforcement team has access to real-time, specific evidence about emissions breaches which allows them to pinpoint the problem the moment it becomes a problem, and take specific steps to improve air quality.
Alex Polkington, Principal Network Impact Assessment Engineer, Croydon Council said, “with the old school system of monitoring, you know there is pollution somewhere in the vicinity”. However, with EMSOL, “we can see what the [emissions] breach was, how intensive it was, and where on the site the breach occurred. And that’s critical”.
