You can still view the draft revised Clean Air for Cornwall Strategy.  It formalises the Council's implementation of current local national planning policy and legislation.  It also incorporates the Cornwall Air Quality action plans for each of the AQMAs (Air Quality Management Areas).   

The existing Clean Air for Cornwall Strategy can be found below. 

Although the air in Cornwall is generally very good, a few areas have poorer air quality mainly due to road traffic. 

The Clean Air for Cornwall Strategy highlights the issues of poor air quality and brings together the action plans for seven Air Quality Management Areas, which include Camborne-Pool-Redruth, Truro, St Austell, Bodmin, TidefordGunnislake and Camelford.  Action Plans for Grampound and Launceston are due in 2019.

The Strategy also details the current planning policy and guidance for developers and provides the Council's commitments to improving air quality.  It aims to ensure that everyone has an understanding of Cornwall’s air quality and how they can help take steps to improve problem areas.
