Economic principles for the assessment of local measures to improve air quality

The objectives of this guidance are to establish general economic principles and economic appraisal methods which can be applied for the assessment of local air quality measures and schemes, and provide a means to improve Local Air Quality Management (LAQM) practice and local action plan performance.

This guidance is principally for local authorities in England in regard to carrying out their local air quality management duties under Part IV of the Environment Act 1995. It is intended to enable local authorities to improve on the service they already provide in tackling poor air quality by specifically providing relevant policy and technical guidance.
