Kirklees Council is updating its plans on Air Quality. It has to submit this to government in July. So what does it propose? Come and hear Andrew Jameson, Kirklees Council Air Quality Officer, who will outline the council's proposals.
We will also be joined by Andrea Lee from ClientEarth (on Skype) to explain what is happening nationally. ClientEarth has challenged the UK Government’s Air Quality Plans three times and each time forced it to go further.
In 2020 Leeds is planning to introduce a large Clean Air Zone and levy charges on a range of vehicles (excluding private cars) if they do not meet minimum emission standards.
