Defra Publishes Low Emission Strategies Guidance

January 2010


LES / Defra Good Practice Guidance DocumentDefra has announced the publication of the ‘Low Emission Strategies Good Practice Guidance’, developed in collaboration with the Low Emission Strategies Partnership. It establishes ways in which the planning system may be used to reduce emissions from transport, in order to improve local air quality and work towards climate change targets.

The guidance is intended for use by local authority planners and those who work closely with them, such as environmental health, transport planning and sustainable development teams. The document outlines the underlying principles of low emission strategies and includes case examples of good practice.

John Paterson, Chair of the LES Partnership Board, said: “I am so pleased to see Defra promoting the Low Emission Strategies approach and it’s great to see a focus on local authorities taking action to reduce emissions. This is the only way that we will meet Air Quality Standards and reduce greenhouse gases.”
