Government releases air pollution plans

Today Defra has released its plans to tackle the illegal levels of air pollution choking many of our towns and cities.

We will be analysing them very closely in the coming weeks to see if the government is really doing everything it can to cut pollution and save people’s lives. If not we won’t hesitate to go back to court.

In April, ClientEarth won a judgment against the government in the Supreme Court. These plans are required by that judgment.
