|Car scrappage voucher scheme to reduce number of diesel cars?|
The government has published a draft plan to improve air quality by reducing nitrogen dioxide levels in UK towns & cities. The options now open for consultation (closes on 15 June 2016) are designed to reduce the impact of diesel vehicles, and accelerate the move to cleaner transport.
Local authorities are already responsible for improving air quality in their area, but will now be expected to develop new & creative solutions to reduce emissions as quickly as possible, while avoiding undue impact on the motorist.In line with the timetable directed by the Courts the government is seeking views on these proposals in advance of preparing its final plan for publication by 31 July 2017. All final decisions will be taken by the incoming government.
