The above link is for the Executive Summary of this report only. Please see the Additional Documents section below for all the report Chapters and Annexes.

The primary aim of the evaluation of the air quality strategy study was to evaluate selected policies, from the road transport and electricity generator sector, from 1990 onwards.

Some of the main messages from the report are:

  1. Policies in both sectors have led to major emissions reductions
  2. These policies have generated large benefits in reducing the health and environmental impacts
  3. These policies have been cost-effective in achieving the desired emissions reductions.

Modelling Air Quality for London using ADMS-Urban (PDF 11.77 MB)
Report Date: 22/10/2003
Categories: Strategic Policy Analysis, Urban Air Quality, Air Quality Modelling
Author: Jo Blair

The ‘map report’ is the third in a series of topic reports prepared as part of a CERC’s contract1 to model air pollutants in urban areas in the UK. The scenario anticipated in Greater London without further measures was investigated, i.e. business as usual, using the Air Dispersion Modelling System ADMS-Urban to model several important pollutants: Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2); Oxides of Nitrogen (NOx); particles smaller than 10 microns diameter (PM10); and Ozone (O3). This is the basis for further modelling of alternative scenarios that may be employed to achieve the air quality objectives laid out in the UK air quality strategy.
