Environment and public health chiefs have made a raft of recommendations to tackle air pollution in London, including new local measures to reduce car use.

In advance of car free day on Sunday, the London Councils Environment Directors' Network and the Association of Directors of Public Health have adopted a joint position on ‘cleaning up London’s air’.

The two groups said it is the first time environment and public health chiefs have joined forces in this way.

The report was endorsed by London Councils Transport Environment Committee last week.

It sets out the causes and impacts on poor air quality, contans case studies of what councils are doing about it, and lays out a set of recommendations to the GLA and government on funding and powers to allow councils to better tackle the problem.

The position statement sets out ‘how we believe we should be responding to this challenge, based on our expertise and the available evidence'.
