Consultation on the Clean Air for Cornwall Strategy

Oct 7, 2016 | Parish News, Uncategorized

Cornwall Council is currently consulting on the Clean Air for Cornwall Strategy.

Although the air in Cornwall is generally very clean, a few areas have poorer air quality mainly due to road traffic.

The Clean Air for Cornwall Strategy highlights the issues of poor air quality and brings together the action plans for all six Air Quality Management Areas, which include Camborne-Pool-Redruth, Truro, St Austell, Bodmin, Tideford and Gunnislake.

The Strategy also details the current planning policy and guidance for developers and provides Cornwall Council’s commitments to improving air quality.  It aims to ensure that everyone has an understanding of Cornwall’s air quality and how they can help take steps to improve problem areas.  The strategy has been divided into the main body and appendices due to the large file size.  Air Quality Action Plans are included within the appendices.
