Air Quality


The Welsh Environment Minister has announced measures aimed at improving air quality in Wales. A Clean Air Plan for Wales will be published in 2018 which will include:-

  • A Clean Air Zone Framework to ensure the consistent and effective implementation of Clean Air Zones by Local Authorities, wherever they are needed;
  • Improvements to Local Authority reporting on air quality issues in their areas and their plans to deal with them; and
  • The establishment of a National Air Quality Assessment and Monitoring Centre for Wales, to advise local and national government on the extent of poor air quality and the effectiveness of current and future actions.
