Answered By: 
The Mayor

There are currently 729 sites registered on the NRMM online register. This demonstrates it is possible to make progress in addressing emissions from construction plant and the wider non-road mobile machinery sector.

However, I am keen to improve the current scheme and go further. I have asked the Government to give me new powers to set emission standards for all Non-Road Mobile Machinery, similar to my existing powers for road vehicles. These powers will include the ability to identify and check machinery as well as introducing appropriate penalties for operators who do not meet the standards.
