National Clean Air Strategy 2018

My Sefton

The UK government is making changes to its approach to tackling air pollution and has launched a public consultation on the draft national Clean Air Strategy.

This is a great opportunity for Sefton businesses to input their views on how they feel air pollution is being tackled at a national level.

The proposed Clean Air Strategy 2018 sets out actions to improve air quality by reducing pollution from a wide range of sources.  The themes making up the strategy are: understanding the problem; protecting the nation’s health; protecting the environment; securing clean growth and innovation; reducing emissions from transport; reducing emissions from farming; reducing emissions from industry; and leadership.  The consultation also asks for views on the strategy as a whole.  Respondents can feedback on as many or as few of the consultation questions as they want.

Sefton Council is working with internal stakeholders and community representatives to develop its response.  If you are  interested in providing feedback from your organisation you can find out more about the Clean Air Strategy and how to submit a response by visiting
