Cleaner Air for Scotland 2: consultation

Consultation on a draft new air quality strategy for Scotland, taking into account the recommendations arising from the independent review of the Cleaner Air for Scotland strategy.

About this consultation

We are consulting on a draft strategy – Cleaner Air for Scotland 2 (CAFS 2) - intended to build on the achievements of the Scottish Government’s Cleaner Air for Scotland (CAFS) strategy, setting out the measures we will take to further improve air quality in Scotland. 

The consultation is structured around 10 chapters which largely reflect the high level recommendations arising from the independently-led CAFS review undertaken between November 2018 and July 2019. There are questions at the end of each chapter which provide an opportunity for you to express your views. 

The questions are posed in a way to accommodate both a general audience and stakeholders with specialist knowledge in certain policy areas. Due to the mix of questions and policies covered in this strategy, there is no requirement to input to every chapter in this consultation, or to provide answers for each consultation question. 

In addition to gathering your views on the actions within CAFS 2, we are also consulting on the Strategic Environmental Assessment Environmental Report, Equalities Impact Assessment and Business and Regulatory Impact Assessment for the strategy. Questions to inform the development of these assessments are at the end of the consultation paper and your comments are welcomed.

We will use the responses to this consultation to help inform finalisation of the CAFS 2 strategy and the associated Equalities Impact Assessment and Business and Regulatory Impact Assessment.
