Article: 54/4510

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.
