Consultation process

An Annual Air Quality Status Report needs to be prepared by local authorities every year and filed electronically using DEFRA’s online LAQM Portal. No specific consultation outside CYC has been undertaken specifically for the purposes of compiling the Annual Status Report. DEFRA appraise the report and provide written feedback to CYC on the contents.

Equality Impact Assessment Completed?: EIA will be completed as part of the report.
