The Scottish Government is consulting on a new draft air quality strategy for Scotland. The draft five-year strategy includes proposals to:
- take forward potential measures to control the supply of the most polluting domestic fuels, including wet wood and house coal
- work with the agriculture sector to develop a voluntary code of good practice to help reduce emission of air pollutants
- adopt a new approach to public engagement and behaviour change in relation to air quality
- continue the shift to more sustainable transport modes, as set out in the National Transport Strategy
The consultation is open until 22 January 2021, and a number of stakeholder events to engage directly with the relevant sectors are planned.
