Environmental Standards Scotland air quality investigation - Scottish Government improvement plan
This improvement plan sets out the Scottish Government’s response to the six key recommendations made by Environmental Standards Scotland following its investigation into air quality.
In November 2021 Environmental Standards Scotland (ESS) announced that its first investigation would consider air quality, specifically focusing on compliance with the nitrogen dioxide limit value set in Directive 2008/50/EC on ambient air quality and cleaner air for Europe, which forms part of retained law following the UK's exit from the European Union. After taking evidence from the Scottish Government, the Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) and local authorities, ESS published its conclusions and recommendations in the form of an improvement report in September 2022.
This improvement plan sets out the Scottish Government's response to the six key recommendations made by ESS in the improvement report.
