Birmingham City Council Clean Air Strategy Consultation

Birmingham City Council is running a consultation on the clean air strategy for the city. “Birmingham City Council believes that every person who lives and works in Birmingham has the right to clean air and that visitors to our city should also benefit from this clean air. But poor air quality in the city is contributing to hundreds of early, preventable deaths and making many existing health conditions worse. Poor air quality disproportionately affects the poorest and most vulnerable in our communities, including children. Furthermore, we have to recognise that many air pollutants have no known safe limits and although our efforts to date have rightly focused on the city centre we must ensure that all neighbourhoods of our city benefit from future interventions to improve air quality.” This consultation closes on 24 April 2019.
