Consultation description

This is a call for evidence to support a policy review of the Clean Air Act 1993 in England. The purpose is to seek your views on our evidence base and for you to provide us with additional evidence based on your experience and knowledge of the Clean Air Act 1993. We welcome any comments and ideas you have for improving the act and meeting the policy objectives described below.

We want to hear from the public, local authorities and businesses affected by the Clean Air Act such as boiler manufacturers, developers and the food industry.

The Clean Air Acts are now almost sixty years old and have around forty associated regulations and are being reviewed as part of the government’s Red Tape Challenge. There are three main objectives of the review:

  • Reducing burdens on business and local authorities
  • Making environmental rules and regulations more user friendly
  • Maintaining the quality of environmental regulations
