Client Earth has today (7 November) launched fresh legal action against the Government on their unambitious plans to clean up the illegally polluted air.

Steve Chambers, Policy and Research Coordinator, Living Streets said:

“The country deserves bold plans to clean up air pollution. Living Streets successfully campaigned to bring forward the Ultra Low Emission Zone in London and to have Oxford Street pedestrianised.

“But air pollution is not restricted to Central London and does not end at the M25 motorway. We need a plan with charging clean air zones in our cities and measures to encourage walking in every local authority area.”
