THE independent review of the Cleaner Air For Scotland (CAFS) strategy led by Professor Campbell Gemmell published its recommendations on August 29th.
Commissioned in November 2018 by the Scottish Government, Professor Gemmell made 10 high-level recommendations following reports by expert working groups relating to health & environment, transport, placemaking and agriculture, industrial and domestic emissions. The final report also made recommendations about the overall governance structure of the CAFS strategy.
A consultation process is underway on the recommendations with the Scottish Government aiming to publish a revised CAFS strategy in 2020.
