The impact of development planning policies on the longer term control of air pollutant emissions can be considerable. Guidance documents from Defra and the Devolved Administrations on using the planning system to develop transport low emission strategies and broader guidance aimed at ensuring air quality is accounted for in local development control processes is available from the Guidance page.

The Campaign for Better Transport has published a document detailing how sustainable transport can support new development and vice versa.
