Appraisal of Local Authority Air Quality Action Plans - Old Contract - AQ01523


To appraise local authorities' air quality action plans and provide helpdesk and website facilities to assist authorities with the development of their air quality action plans.

why fund it? We do not have the in-house resources to appraise all the local authority action plans and the consultants provide an invaluable expert/technical service to assist local authorities with development of their air quality action plans

what do we get out of it? The consultants act on behalf of Secretary of State (Defra) who is a statutory consultee for receipt of local authority action plans. We are also able to help authorities improve their skills in action planning by providing assistance through the helpdesk/website
