Draft Air Quality Strategy 2018 Consultation Response

The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs has issued a consultation on its Draft Air Quality Strategy 2018. The BVRLA has submitted a response which reminds the government that to achieve its ambitious and vitally important air improvement targets a holistic approach towards pollution reduction must be taken. The association has reiterated its calls for further infrastructure investment, a more supportive tax regime and greater incentives for manufacturers, which taken together could help encourage greater take up of greener, electric and hybrid vehicles. The BVRLA response also urges a pragmatic, solutions focused approach to the implementation of Clean Air Zones to ensure air quality benefits are realised without unnecessarily penalising businesses and the local economy. The full government consultation is available in full at the gov.uk website.
