Recommendation ID

Clean air zones:- How do different elements of a clean air zone interact to improve air quality and what is the overall effect on people's health?

Any explanatory notes
(if applicable)

Why this is important:- At publication of this guideline, clean air zones were being introduced. These zones are likely to vary across the country and it is important to use this opportunity to identify which elements are most effective and cost effective at reducing air pollution and supporting a shift to zero- and low-emission travel. Studies are needed to evaluate:
- exposure to air pollution
- acute and chronic health outcomes
- impact on health inequalities.
Research is also needed to look at travel behaviour in relation to different groups, to inform public awareness and social marketing approaches.
