Webinar: The role of local authorities in managing air pollution

In this webinar, Davide Pascarella considers the implications of the Environment Bill on local governments’ regulatory framework around Smoke Control Areas.

Davide explores and highlights the impact of policy decisions and the real-world delivery of initiatives to tackle the contribution to air pollution from wood-burning appliances. Studies indicate residential wood-burning stoves result in PM2.5 emissions which make a surprisingly large contribution to total air pollution and related health costs. With the announcement of new rules surrounding wood-burning appliances that will come into force in 2021-2022, the webinar examines our understanding of the practicalities of this policy implementation on delivering Smoke Control Areas.
