Initial estimates of emissions of PM10 indicate that the proposals included in the draft Air Quality Strategy (including planned measures and natural vehicle fleet turnover) will achieve a 20 per cent reduction across London between 2006 and 2012, which is around 470 tonnes.

As the Strategy sets out, we have modelled against 2012 as many of the measures have target or implementation dates for 2012. Data is not yet available for London's air quality emissions in 2009. We anticipate some of the measures benefiting from pre-compliance during 2011. We will be doing detailed analysis of 2011 for the public draft of the Air Quality Strategy.
