Green Comment: New data on key sources of air pollution in Oxford

As expected, this report shows only minor improvements in air quality pre-COVID. 
Only during COVID did air quality improve to the point where it was no longer breaching international standards. 
Says Green Councillor Dick Wolff, "Rather than seeking to 'lock in' the improvements to air quality witnessed in the last few months, the City Council are actually DELAYING the introduction of a clean air zone in the City Centre and for a number of weeks even waived car parking charges. We need to 'build back better' - not return to the same poor air quality."
The Greens have proposed Low Traffic Neighbourhoods across the City, additional bus gates, an expanded clean air zone and massive improvements to cycle infrastructure.
