Consultation reveals thumbs down for Govt’s nitrogen dioxide plan

The UK's Supreme Court says air quality compliance for London will only be achieved by 2025, fifteen years after the original deadline, and in 2020 for the other 15 zones.

The Government has today published a summary of responses received in its consultation of its revised plan for tackling roadside nitrogen dioxide emissions. The clear message from respondents was that there is little confidence that the plans will deliver improvements quickly enough, and the Government needs to take a lead rather than placing the burden solely on local authorities.
