Consultation on Welsh Clean Air Zones

27th April 2018

The Welsh government's consultation on Clean Air Zones

The Welsh government has launched a consultation on its proposals to introduce clean air zones (CAZs).

It has instructed councils in Cardiff and Caerphilly to conduct feasibility studies into launching CAZs in both areas, and is now inviting open feedback from members of the public.

The introduction of CAZs by 2020 is already required for the cities of Birmingham, Derby, Leeds, Nottingham and Southampton, but no Welsh councils are currently mandated to implement them.
