The Clean Air StrategyFri 18 Jan 2019
The Clean Air Strategy shows how government intends to tackle all sources of air pollution, ‘making our air healthier to breathe, protecting nature and boosting the economy.’
Government pledged to bring down dangerously high pollution levels within six years. Measures include ‘reducing emissions by modal shift’, such as encouraging an increase in cycling and walking, siting its own ‘Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy’ with £1.2 bn invested to double the level of cycling by 2025.
Proposals were broadly welcomed but health associations and campaign groups said some measures had already been announced and others didn’t go far enough.
