Launch of the new World Health Organisation (WHO) Air Quality Guidelines

Members were advised that guidelines were last published in 2006 and there had been lots of movement since leading to significant changes. The guidelines were not legally binding but provided a great evidence base. It was noted that the new Environment Bill set national targets supported by these guidelines and the City Corporation was already well on track to reach the targets. Officers would consider the implications for the Corporation and bring a report to the Committee for consideration.
