B2.4.4 Air Quality Strategy


The latest Air Quality Strategy for England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland was published in July 2007.

This 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.
