Consultation on the draft revised Air Quality Strategy

Closed 21 Apr 2023

Opened 11 Apr 2023


The Government recognises that there is more to do to protect people and the environment from the effects of air pollution, which is why we are taking significant and wide-ranging action to drive improvements to air quality.  Effective action is needed at all levels and there is a key role for local government in identifying and targeting measures to improve air quality in their areas.

The Air Quality Strategy sets out the actions the government expects local authorities to take in support of achieving our long-term air quality goals, including our ambitious new PM2.5 targets. It provides a framework to enable local authorities to make the best use of their powers and deliver for their communities.

This consultation seeks views on the revised draft Air Quality Strategy. We will use the responses to this consultation to help inform the final Air Quality Strategy due to be published later this year.  While we are particularly interested in views from local authorities and other local partners, we would welcome responses from all other interested parties and the wider public. 

This consultation has now closed.
