Evidence submitted in response to this Consultation

Purpose of the consultation

The Climate Change, Environment and Rural Affairs Committee (‘the Committee’) is undertaking an inquiry into air quality.

This work coincides with the Welsh Government’s consultation, The Clean Air Plan for Wales Healthy Air, Healthy Wales. The output from the Committee’s inquiry is intended to inform the development of the Welsh Government’s legislative proposals for a Clean Air Act for Wales, which are expected to be published before the end of this Assembly term.

 

The Committee would welcome your views on the Welsh Government’s legislative proposals relating to clean air, as outlined in its consultation, The Clean Air Plan for Wales Healthy Air, Healthy Wales, including:

 

  • What regulatory gaps or issues will need to be addressed after the UK leaves the EU? How should these be addressed and what will be the main challenges?

 

  • Are the Welsh Government’s proposals for a Clean Air Act appropriate? How could they be improved? What can be learned from legislative approaches elsewhere?

 

  • What are your views on the regulatory proposals in relation to the Local Air Quality Management regime? What are the main challenges in relation the proposed approach?

 

  • What are your views on the regulatory proposals relating to domestic combustion (including fireworks/bonfires), road vehicle idling and Clean Air Zones/Low Emission Zones?

 

  • What are the main challenges in introducing a legislative framework for air quality as set out in the consultation document?
