Low Emissions Strategies Guidance


The Low Emissions Strategies (LES) Partnership of local authorities work together to improve air quality and reduce carbon emissions from road transport.

In January 2010, the Low Emissions Strategies Guidance document was published in collaboration with Defra. This guidance is intended for use by local authority planner, environmental health, transport planning and sustainable development teams, and provides an outline of the principles of Low Emissions Strategies and examples of good practice.

In January 2011, LES also produced guidance for local authorities who are seeking to develop Supplementary Planning Documents for Low Emissions Strategies.

A number of useful guidance, reports, discussion papers and tools are available from the LES website. The Low Emissions Strategies Toolkit has been produced and information on this tool is available on the LES tools and resources page. You can also sign up for a newsletter on the site.
