UK Air Pollution Plans Taken to Court

The Government has come under fire from ClientEarth for the third time “over its persistent failure” in preventing and cleaning up air pollution across the UK.

The environmental law firm has won its previous two legal cases brought against the government and in its latest attempt claims that the Government has stalled in its aim to create clean air zones in at least five cities before 2020.

In addition, it is claimed that no action is being taken by the Government on around 45 local authorities that currently have illegal levels of air pollution.

ClientEarth’s CEO James Thornton stated: “The UK Government’s stubborn failure to tackle illegal and harmful levels of pollution in this country means that we have no choice but to take legal action.”

“We need clarity from the government and for that, we have been forced to go back to court.”

A spokesman for the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs spokesperson claimed: “We have put in place a £3 billion plan to improve air quality and reduce harmful emissions.”

“We will also end the sale of new diesel and petrol cars by 2040, and next year we will publish a comprehensive Clean Air Strategy which will set out further steps to tackle air pollution.”

“We now have an opportunity to deliver a green Brexit and improve environmental standards as we leave the EU.”
