Clean Air Zones consultation launched

Birmingham is one of five cities (along with Leeds, Nottingham, Derby and Southampton) required by the Government to have a Clean Air Zone (CAZ) in place by 2020, to ensure compliance with UK and EU air quality legislation and to tackle pollution and create a cleaner, healthier environment for citizens. In the middle of the month, the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) launched a nationwide consultation on the Implementation of the Clean Air Zones in England.  Follow the link to see the consultation document, the draft Clean Air Zone Framework, the draft secondary legislation and the associated impact assessment.
