The LGA welcomes efforts to improve air quality. We believe this framework highlights some of the necessary measures to do so. We hope that the Government improves the strategy as a result of consultation and engagement with local authorities.
As well as submitting this response the LGA hopes we can continue to work with Government to suggest improvements to the strategy and ensure we meet the Government’s responsibilities in delivering clean air across the country.
We have some specific points to make which are further reflected in our answers to questions. The points may be made more than once where they are appropriate to answer the questions posed by the consultation.
