Assessment of Clean Air Zones
Under the UK government's July 2017 NO2plan, 23 local authorities are required to assess options such as Clean Air Zones (CAZ) to reduce NO2 levels in their areas. Last month the High Court ruled that a further 33 local authorities will need to study proposals to improve air quality. The government has begun working with these local authorities.
Robust assessments will be necessary to deliver these projects. CERC offer our world-leading model ADMS-Urban which is designed for assessing air quality interventions such as Clean Air Zones. For instance, ADMS-Urban is being used by
- Transport for Greater Manchester to model CAZ options
- Glasgow City Council and SEPA to modelLow Emissions Zone proposals for bus corridors in the city centre (see map).
