Last year the Scottish Government decided to undertake an independent review of its air quality strategy ‘Cleaner Air for Scotland – The Road to a Healthier Future’ (CAFS) which was published in November 2015. The review was a commitment in the 2018/19 Programme for Government and was launched by the Cabinet Secretary for the Environment, Climate Change and Land Reform on 6 November 2018. A Steering Group and an chair were appointed and tasked with reviewing the progress of the CAFS Strategy to date, assessing the current state of Scotland’s air quality and possible future trajectories, identifying evidence and activity gaps and finally, providing advice and recommendations on priorities for further action. We are now seeking wider comment on the review Steering Group’s report and recommendations, prior to beginning a redraft of the CAFS strategy for consultation and publication in 2020. We would be extremely grateful if you could take the time to provide any additional comments you may have on the review report, or suggestions for priority recommendations, via this survey: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/WHHXVYF
Please feel free to circulate the link to your own networks. The deadline for comments is Midday on Friday 13 December.
