Carbon neutrality - air quality

13 May 2021

This online event took place on 11 May 2021 and is now available on-demand. The content in this recording was correct as of the original webinar date.

Air quality is a major issue in the UK. In March this year the UK was found guilty by the European Court of Justice of ‘systematically and persistently’ breaching air pollution limits and recent events, such as a coroner finding that a child died of air pollution exposure, emphasise the need for the government to take action. The Environment Bill promises what the government calls a ‘more tailored approach’ to air quality, although precisely what measures will be implemented and when (the Bill has been delayed multiple times) is far from certain.

This on-demand video discussed the current statutory framework for the regulation of air quality and how this is likely to evolve.

Presenters for this webinar were be Ben Standing and Laura Hughes, partners in Browne Jacobson’s environment team.

Will councils be forced to install EV charging?

The central government’s Net Zero commitments will require the use of high carbon combustive fossil fuels to decline in order to meet its targets. A ban on new combustion engine vehicles from 2030 (and 2035 for certain hybrid models) is due to be imposed in order to reduce emissions, assisting with its Net Zero goals.

Recovering monies from an individual? Don’t forget about the Pre-Action Protocol for Debt Claims

The PAPDC does not apply to business to business debt only if the debtor is a sole trader. Much more information is required under the PAPDC within a letter of claim and debtors should be given more time to respond along with an opportunity to make payment proposals throughout the pre-action process.
