Government will not appeal High Court ruling on air pollution plan deadline

The government has confirmed that it will not appeal last week’s High Court judgment which ordered it to produce its air quality plans by 9 May.

ClientEarth CEO James Thornton said: “We’re delighted the government has decided to stop dithering and delaying and look forward to seeing its air quality plans after the local elections.

“We’ll be analysing these plans and making sure they are up to scratch. We must see truly robust measures, including a national network of clean air zones to keep the dirtiest diesel vehicles away from pollution hotspots in our towns and cities.”
