Redbridge Council is seeking feedback on plans to fine drivers who leave their engines running while parked as part of the authority’s efforts to reduce air pollution.

“Engine idling is one of the key contributors to air pollution and this new policy will be an important tool to reduce toxic air,” said a spokesperson.

Fines will only be issued if drivers refuse to switch off their engine when asked. The consultation closes on 2 August.
