Defra publishes Air Quality Strategy

Tuesday July 17th, 2007

The UK Government and the devolved administrations published the latest Air Quality Strategy for England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland, 17 July 2007 (Cmd paper No 7169).

The Strategy:

  • sets out a way forward for work and planning on air quality issues
  • sets out the air quality standards and objectives to be achieved
  • introduces a new policy framework for tackling fine particles
  • identifies potential new national policy measures which modelling indicates could give further health benefits and move closer towards meeting the Strategy's objectives.
