The government has published its draft plan to improve UK air quality.
The document has been revealed ahead of the 9 May deadline imposed by a court ruling against a further deadline extension.
Consultation is now open until 15 June 2017.
Measures that will be consulted on include potential encouragement for councils to retrofit high-polluting vehicles and the option of introducing clean air zones in 27 towns and cities in England.
