View original UK100 calls for clean air fund to tackle air pollution

The UK100 group of local government leaders called for a £1.5 billion clean air fund to tackle vehicle pollution. The group, which includes the Mayors of major UK cities, propose using the fund to subsidise between £2,000 and £6,000 off the cost of low-emission vehicles for low income residents and small businesses along with schemes to increase the utilization of public transport. The UK100 call for the government to contribute £1 billion to the fund, with the remaining £500 million to be contributed by the private sector.

The Transport Knowledge Hub is a fantastic resource and I’m really excited about the opportunity to explore how we can maximise its use among transport stakeholders. In the South East Midlands, investing in local transport infrastructure has unlocked significant economic growth. The Hub offers a formal framework for sharing expertise with decision makers around the UK, as well as learning from the experience of others. This will enable more investment to be directed towards  local and sustainable forms of transport.
