A 10 min podcast that will get you up to speed on Air Quality law, implementation of EU law in the UK  and Aarhus.

UPDATE – Since this podcast was recorded in March 2016, Client Earth has sought and gained permission to judicially review the Government over air quality plans. The hearing has been fast tracked to the 18 and 19 of October 2016. Andrew Allan has said “This is a reminder of how EU law protects British people from dangerous air pollution” What will be the outcome of this challenge now that we are Brexiting?
