Description

Implementing the Air Quality Plan and Clean Air Zones

The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs has mandated that urban areas across the country must introduce Clean Air Zones in order to improve local air quality. The first five of these, in Leeds, Birmingham, Nottingham, Derby and Southampton, will come into force in 2020. Clean Air Zones have also been proposed in a raft of other cities such as Newcastle, Liverpool, Sheffield, Bristol and Cardiff.

This event will provide insight into how local authorities across the country will implement their strategies designed to deal with air pollution problems, and in particular will explore the practicalities and complications of introducing Clean Air Zones, and how residents and businesses will be affected.

Our panel:

Dr. Guy Hitchcock from Ricardo Energy and Environment, who leads work in supporting local authorities plan their Clean Air Zones,

Councillor Adele Morris, Deputy Chair of the Environment, Economy, Housing and Transport Board of the Local Government Association and Liberal Democrat Councillor for Southwark.

Steven Salmon, Director of Policy Development, Confederation of Passenger Transport

Holly Lynch MP, Shadow DEFRA Minister
