Public buy-in critical to success of city air quality schemes (video)

Anna Railton

The barriers local authorities face when implementing a clean air zone scheme to tackle local air pollution and how they can secure public buy-in will be discussed at this year’s Smart Transport National Conference.

Taking place at The Eastside Rooms in Birmingham, on 21 and 22 November, the high-level conference will bring together senior transport leaders who help shape transport policy and deliver its infrastructure.

Anna Railton, Oxford city councillor and cabinet member for Zero Carbon Oxford and Climate Justice, will join Tim Anderson, group head of transport at Energy Saving Trust and Jason Torrance, interim chief executive at UK 100, in the breakout session taking place on Day 2 (22 November) at 11.45.
